Hi All,

I am using struts. I have a req. in which i click on submit button i need to open an pop up show some values and close of that popup do some validations. I am using an modal dialog for doing that. I am doing this way

var check=window.showModalDialog(""

Here the problem is strNum can be any character. If strNum contains %,& etc, i am getting error and i am not able to get the exact values in action class. Can any one suggest a way to avoid this.

Thanks and Regards,

Since this value might have characters that will mess up a URL, you will have to write a javaScript function that will encode offending characters. Then send strNum to that function before putting it into the URL.

Here's a sample javaScript encoder fucction that I got off the web:
