XForms/Encoding Parameters

MotivationEdit

When you submit data to a web service you want to change the way that parameters are encoded.

MethodEdit

Changing the Separator CharacterEdit

By default the separator character is a semicolon. You can change it to be an ampersand by adding the following attribute to the submission element:

  separator="&"

Note that the ampersand must be escaped.

(09 MAR 2009 the default was changed to ampersand in the official xsd-file)

Changing the URL encoding ParameterEdit

You can also change the way that special characters are encoded by using the encoding attribute.

The options are any of the character encoding systems such as:

encoding="ISO-8859-1"

encoding="UTF-16"
