I have some code that I am trying to use for a link.  However, the spaces are messing up that link.  How can I get rid of them?

I tried this but my code just errors out.  

+ "<br> <a href=" + str_replace(" ", "%20", graphic.attributes.SAPALINK) + ">SAPA Report</a>"

Thanks I'm hoping for a simple solution here.  FWIW - This is in a mapping application and going inside an info box but it is using javascript to do so.

Assuming the field is called graphic.attributes.SAPALINK

then:
<a href=" + graphic.attributes.SAPALINK.str_replace(" ", "%20") + ">SAPA Report</a>

Open in new window

add simple quote around for the href and use encodeURIComponent :

+ "<br> <a href='" + encodeURIComponent(graphic.attributes.SAPALINK) + "'>SAPA Report</a>"

Or leakim971's option! Always forget about encodeURIComponent!

Much better than replacing characters.

Yes, the encodeURIComponen as it's your link not a parameter for your link
