How can I prevent Silk Performer from encoding special characters in my URL?
If you have a URL which needs to contain for example a "%" you may experience a difficulty as the % character will be converted into its hexadecimal equivalent for posting, thus % becomes %25.
Silk Performer defaults to standard URL encoding. This encodes any unsafe characters included in URLs in order to comply with the Uniform Resource Locators specification. This encoding is commonly applied to URL parameters or FORM post parameters
If however your application does not need to encode such special characters then you can force Silk Performer not to encode the character but instead send it in its ascii representation.
String value : f2ed34a584%7Cde358b60 3815151
String value with normal encoding : f2ed34a584%257Cde358b60%203815151
If you look at the string sent by Silk Performer above, you will see that a "%25" has replaced the "%" as this is the hexadecimal value for "%". Also the space character has been replaced by %20
In order to prevent encoding of the URL you need to use the attribute as follows :
sUrl := f2ed34a584%7Cde358b60 3815151 dclform MY_FORM009 : "Level" := "3", "idName" := sName, "idpass" := sPass, "sURL" := sURL;
