[FF.au3] _FFOpenURL opening an URL with spaces

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been struggling a while with that and I'm clueless, if anyone has an idea, many thanks.

Here's my issue, I have an URL I'd like to open that contains spaces (might contain special chars like ' as well), and I'm using FF.au3, it doesn't work, I tried replacing them with %20, it doesn't either

#include "FF.au3"

Show us a real world example of what you're trying to do, one that points to a real website so it can be tested.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

ok, I (finally) made a little progress, the spaces weren't the culprit, it was an accentuated character, in other words :

_FFOpenURL('https://www.google.com/search?q=hello world')


_FFOpenURL('https://www.google.com/search?q=hello à world')

doesn't work


doesn't work either

getting _FFOpenURL ==> No match: https://www.google.com/search?q=hello'world

Edit : I had in mind that URL encoding didn't work since I had typed {hello%20à%20world} and I was still getting the error... but these examples work :

for the spaces :


for the ' :


However I still can't make an example with à  to work


none of these work


Edit 2 : crap I was mixing HTML code, ISO and URL encoding (iso-8859-1)  sorry :-D

so the answer is (for {hello à world}) :

_FFOpenURL("https://www.google.com/search?q=hello %e0 world")
