Title

Issue with a web viewer

Post

Hello,

  I read a tip in a magazine on how to send email with IWP using a web viewer.  Basically you use the Set Web Viewer script step to set the URL to mailto command.  It works great except for one problem.  I want to have a multiple lines in my body.  The syntax %OA works great when I type the command directly into a URL but when I use the same command in the script step I don't get multiple lines.  More specifically my Go to URL command is "mailto:example@yahoo.com?subject=memo&body=The message's first paragraph.%0A%0aSecond paragraph.%0A%0AThird Paragraph"

 

When I type that directly into internet explorer my body looks like:

The message's first paragraph

 

Second Paragraph

 

Third Paragraph

 

However when the URL is set with the script I get:

The message's first paragraph.%0A%0aSecond paragraph.%0A%0AThird Paragraph

 

I was just wondering if anyone else had attempted this trick and encountered this problem.  Any suggestions on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks
