Yes dZ you have right, if you have a Param containing reserved characters always must be PRE encoded (I can use Base64 or a Post method). But my problem is just an URL containing characters valid for standard Filenames. ...I was finding a function to do something like IE does in the address bar.

What if the value of "par" contained an ampersand symbol, a slash, an equal sign, or a question mark? Since you cannot tell which parts need to be encoded, you must use UrlEncode individually on the parts that require it, and concatenate them with the valid characters as in my example. > This kind of codification must be "parse-sensitive", because an URL > cannot > be completely encoded without taking care of Protocol, Address, Port, > Folders, File and Parameters (..and Authentication and Bookmark > information). Again, you are assuming that it is straight-forward. The atoms for the server part are predictable: protocol, FQDN, port, path, filename, but anything after that is not, which is the reason why escaping is necessary, because valid delimiters can be part of parameter names or values. dZ. -- DZ-Jay [TeamICS] http://www.overbyte.be/eng/overbyte/teamics.html -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
