Hello all! I'm currently having the following problem:

My web app has a "Send Mail" feature which needs to open Outlook via a simple mailto. Once the outlook window opens, I populate the subject and body fields, as such:

The http link is a url to a servlet that needs to pass three parameters.
The mailto in my jsp looks like:

Unfortunately what I get for my hyperlink is:
http://appsvr:9080/ProjWeb/ControlServlet?action=loadWorkItem

(It is not a big deal if users see these parameters in the link.)
The rest of the parameters aren't rendered in the email's body.
I have a feeling it's because of the ampersand following my first parameter. Is there a way to render my complete url in outlook, with all three parameters?

--Steve

Hi,

I have the same problem. Could you post how you did it with Javascript?

Since this post is over a year old and the original poster only has 4 posts to his name, I think it's safe to assume that he's moved on.

I'll move this to our HTML/Javascript forum where the Ranch's Javascript Gurus hang out.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
