Sending foreign characters to a modalDialog using 'window.showModalDialog'
Posted on 2008-06-15
I am writing a c# asp.net application in which i want to open a modal dialog and sent parameters to it.
var retVal = window.showModalDialog('EntitiesList.aspx?name=" + name, window, 'dialogWidth:220px;dialogHeight:200px,top=300,left=400,');
When my 'name' parameter contains foreign characters (for example, Montó or María), the value received at the destination page has a square (box) instead of the special letter.
How can i send the special characters to my destination page?
