asp server.UrlEncod e VS asp.net Server.UrlEncod e Vs Php urlencode

Hi,

what's the difference about Asp Server.UrlEncod e and the Asp.Net
Server.UrlEncod e ?

In asp:
Server.UrlEncod e("*") = %2A

In Asp.Net:
Server.UrlEncod e("*") = *

In Php
urlencode("*") = %2A

why ?

You want to read RFC2396 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt) to understand
what is valid in a URI.

Section 2.3 deals with unreserved characters (which * is a part of) and
says:

" Unreserved characters can be escaped without changing the semantics of the
URI, but this should not be done unless the URI is being used in a context
that does not allow the unescaped character to appear."

which, to me, implies ASP.Net is likely doing it right..

Hi there, I am having trouble with some data that is ripped from a SQL database and displayed as a hyperlink. The hyperlink inserts the data into a querystring so the next page can read it. However, some of the data has apostrophies (') in it, so the page does not redirect properly (invalid syntax) because of the apostrophy. so i tried to use the URL encode to get around this to no avail - it doesnt

I am in a situation where I need to package some information from Page1, submit it via POST to another server which will process the information and then send the user to another page on my server (Page2).

Does anyone have a solution for this or has seen an example that works for this situation?

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;301464 Look down at the MyPage.asp example. You will see that Microsoft does this: 'Costruct the URL for the current page s = "http://" s = s & Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST") s = s & Request.ServerVariables("URL") If Request.QueryString.Count > 0 Then s = s & "?" & Request.QueryString
