My Java standalone application gets a URL (which points to a file) from the user and I need to hit it and download it. The problem I am facing is that I am not able to encode the HTTP URL address properly...
URL: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/first book.pdfjava.net.URLEncoder.encode(url.toString(), "ISO-8859-1");
But, what I want is
(space replaced by %20)
URLEncoder is not designed to encode HTTP URLs... The JavaDoc says "Utility class for HTML form encoding"... Is there any other way to do this?
Say I have a URL
and I have a query entered by the user such as:
random word £500 bank $
I want the result to be a properly encoded URL:
What's the best way to achieve this? I tried
URLEncoder and creating URI/URL objects but none of them come out quite right.
I am trying to urlencode this string before I submit.
queryString = 'eventName=' + evt.fields["eventName"] + '&' + 'eventDescription=' + evt.fields["eventDescription"];
Is there a built-in way to URL encode a string in Excel VBA or do I need to hand roll this functionality?
I'm using Fiddler to capture some interactive web configuration and then programmatically replicating the steps through PowerShell. Many of the POST calls are using content type application/x-www-form-urlencoded.
Example (dot and dash are encoded but equal is not):Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedvalue1=some%2Ething&value2=srv%2DD001
Using a .NET library to URL encode along with various online tools, the raw string values don't match up with capture in Fiddler and in particular the "=" equal signs are not changed. Is there a specific way I need to construct the body of key pair values such that the equal sign is preserved and not URL encoded? Also I'm not quite sure how the encoding comes up with "&" as the delimiter for each key value pair.
I can construct the body as Fiddler is capturing it - but ideally I'd like to pass the values in a well structured format and let the encode process take care of the formatting.
