hello,

I have a problem with a variable that comes from a querystring request.

the name of the variable is:

p_flight

and it could contain 4 different values:

7 a.m. CID to MSN
8 a.m. MSN to CID
4 p.m. CID to MSN
5 p.m. MSN to CID

this variables are passed from a web html form to a perl script that redirects to a success html page with a javascript function that retrieves the variables from the url to display in the success page.

all the variables work fine, but the ones that contain spaces in between on word and another are being displayed with the '%' sign.

is there any way i can remove the sign after the variables is retrieved?

any help would be great.

thank you.
this is the success page:
 

<html>

<head>

<title>Success Page</title>

<script language="javascript">
 

p_name = "";

p_date = "";

p_flight = "";

p_cancel_by = "";

p_emp_number = "";

p_emp_email = "";
 

// Get names

var queryString = window.location.href.substring((window.location.href.indexOf('?') + 1));

var array1 = queryString.split('&'); // Each array element is in format "fieldname=value"

for(var i = 0; i < array1.length; i++){

 var tempArray = array1[i].split('='); // Separate fieldname and value

 eval(tempArray[0] + " = \"" + tempArray[1] + "\"");

}
 

</script>

</head>

<body>

<p>

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_name);</script> 

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_date);</script> 

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_flight);</script> 

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_cancel_by);</script> 

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_emp_number);</script> 

<script language="javascript"> document.write(p_emp_email);</script> 

</p>

</form>

</body>

</html>

This code is in Java Script
function urldecode( str ) {

    // http://kevin.vanzonneveld.net

    // +   original by: Philip Peterson

    // +   improved by: Kevin van Zonneveld (http://kevin.vanzonneveld.net)

    // *     example 1: urldecode('Kevin+van+Zonneveld%21');

    // *     returns 1: 'Kevin van Zonneveld!'

    

    var ret = str;

       

    ret = ret.replace(/\+/g, '%20');

    ret = decodeURIComponent(ret);

    ret = ret.toString();

 

    return ret;

}
