I use the HyperlinkToURL ( string url ) function of the Inet object, but I have problems with the url.

I need encode the arguments values of the url same as java do it with java.net.URLEncoder.encode(String s).

Hi,

You could use the Javascript engine from PowerScript
and use the "escape" function. A working sample script :

--------------8<--------------8<--------------8<--------------

OleObject l_ole
Inet lsvc_inet
String ls_temp

// URL to encode
String ls_URL = "www.yourpage.com/sample page with spaces.htm"

l_ole = CREATE OleObject
If l_ole.ConnectToNewObject("MSScriptControl.ScriptControl") = 0 Then
      l_ole.language = "javascript"
      // encode
      ls_temp = l_ole.Eval("escape('" + ls_URL + "')")
      DESTROY l_ole
Else
      MessageBox("Error1", "...")
      Return -1
End If

// finally we open the encoded URL
If GetContextService("Internet", lsvc_inet) > 0 Then
      lsvc_inet.HyperlinkToURL( ls_temp )
Else
      MessageBox("Error2", "...")
End If

--------------8<--------------8<--------------8<--------------

Hope it helps
Regards
