Send parameters with # sign

Question

We have a datapage that sends a set of parameters to another datapage via a URL query string. This works well, except when a parameter contains a '#' symbol, which blocks the value that follows this in the URL from being received. 

Do you have any way of sending values containing the "#" symbol? Thanks in advance.

Hello Hayley,

You can add a field either Calculated Field or Calculated value to replace '#' in the value to URL encoded character '%23'

replace([@field:FIELDNAME],'#','%23')
 
Then, pass this value as parameter. 
 
You can also hide this calculation, so it will not be visible in the form. 
 
Hope this helps.

Hi!

Just to add on this, I have found a documentation containing the list of URL encoded characters that you can use as a reference: https://www.degraeve.com/reference/urlencoding.php

Hello @Hayley, you can use a JavaScript function to encode the string. Below is the sample code. You can input this code into your HTML block where you want to define your link.

<script>
document.write("<a href='mysite.com?param='" + escape('[@field:FN]') + ">link</a>") ;
</script>

You can also check the references below:
