HyperlinkToURL

Hi
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).

Thanks.

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
