URL variable values encoded

The url variable value looks like myname%40domain.ca

How do I take that in Javascript and convert it to myname@domain.ca?

You may need decodeURI instead (will replace encoded :/;? too) :

var s = "myname%40domain.ca";
var d = decodeURI(s);

alert(d);

Open in new window


or decodeURIComponent instead (will replace encoded ~!@#$%^&*(){}[]=:/,;?+'"\ too) :

var s = "myname%40domain.ca";
var d = decodeURIComponent(s);

alert(d);

Open in new window
