http udf and "&" char

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

i am working with this http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...amp;hl=http+udf it is a http udf. it works great, but...

i can't use the post methode and use in a var a "&" char.

some of you will think: wtf?!

so here an example


$host = "www.domain.com"
    $page = "/file.php"
    $text  = "hoi & Co"
    $vars = "var=" & $text
    ;$vars = _HTTPEncodeString($vars)

    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF&@CRLF&"Example POST Request:"&@CRLF)
    $socket = _HTTPConnect($host)
    ConsoleWrite("Socket Created: "&$socket&@CRLF)
    $get = _HTTPPost($host, $page, $socket, $vars)
    ConsoleWrite("Bytes sent: "&$get&@CRLF)
    $recv = _HTTPRead($socket,1)
    If @error Then
        ConsoleWrite("_HTTPRead Error: "&@error&@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("_HTTPRead Return Value: "&$recv &@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("HTTP Return Code: "&$recv[0]&@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("HTTP Return Response: "&$recv[1]&@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("Number of headers: "&UBound($recv[3])&@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("Size of data downloaded: "&StringLen($recv[4])&" bytes"&@CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite("Page downloaded: "&@CRLF&$recv[4]&@CRLF)


with the get methode it works (i only have to replace "&" with "%26") but the text is to much to use the get methode.

Any ideas?

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
