Synopsis

                    URLEncodedFormat(string [, CharacterSet])

Encodes strings that otherwise cause errors when passed as URLs. Optionally, a Java character set for the string to be encoded can be specified. Depending on the server’s JRE, options typically include UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-16BE, UTF-16LE, US-ASCII, and ISO-8859-1. If no character set is specified, ColdFusion defaults to the response character encoding. URLEncodedFormat( ) replaces nonalphanumeric characters with their equivalent hexadecimal escape sequences. ColdFusion automatically decodes any URL-escaped strings it encounters. The following example creates a URL-encoded hyperlink from a string containing spaces and nonalphanumeric characters:

<cfset TheDate = "04/15/2003">
<cfset ItemID = "123456">
<cfset Customer = "Caroline Smith">
