Sending foreign characters from page to page using query string
Posted on 2008-06-15
I posted a question earlier today about problem with foreign characters. I thought that the problem was solved but, actually, it was partially solved.
I am trying to send parameters from 1 page to another using query string, the following way:
var retVal = window.showModalDialog('EntitiesList.aspx?name=" + name, window, 'dialogWidth:220px');
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.
I was offered to change the encoding of the application to "ISO-8859-1" and so i did.
It helped with some of the characters but not with all characters.
For example, it helped with French but not Hebrew characters.
Is there a way to transfer all kinds of characters from 1 page to another?
