Client Script Changing/encoding Values

Client Script Changing/encoding Values

Client Script Changing/encoding Values


I'm running this code"


Dim ShowArchiveFileIs as string = ("Articles\bbn07282015.htm")

       Dim url As String = ShowArchiveFileIs
                Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
                sb.Append("<script type = 'text/javascript'>")
                ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "script", sb.ToString()) 

When the page opens it fails and shows the url as "http://localhost:59503/Articles%08bn07162015.htm"

Seems it's encoding a piece of my string. the "\b" is getting encoded to %08

Is there a way to prevent this from happening

Hi Dan,

use a foreslash. URLs do not use backslashes.


Dim ShowArchiveFileIs as string = ("Articles/bbn07282015.htm")
