Using javascript for @URLDecode

This tip describes the procedure for using JavaScript for @URLDECODE operations.

It is easy to encode a string with @UrlEncode and there are various long-winded methods for decoding the string.

This is a simple fast example of how javascript can be used to accomplish the desired result. The example contains semicolon/commas to demonstrate how you can get around users submitting data containing semicolons and commas without confusing domino into thinking they are multiple values.

Field 1 (Multivalue - computed for display)

temp:="Searchdomino; rocks" : "Searchdomino, rocks again";
@UrlEncode("UTF-8"; temp)

Field2 (multivalue - computed for display - display values on new line)


you should get two values on a separate line :)
