URL Encode Javascript


I am trying to Encode a Text Field within a javascript function. 
The way I have it, it breaks the URL after any special character so its messing up my query.
If anyone has any experience with this please feel free to comment and assist. 

Thank You. 

var span_val = $("span#FIELD_TO_ENCODE").html();
var url = "";         
       url += "";             
       url += "?act=API_AddRecord";             
       url += "&apptoken="+qbAppToken;             
       url += "&_fid_7=URLEncode("+span_val;                       
       url += "&_fid_6="+ order_ID;

  • Hi Adis,

    Taking a look at the formula you pasted here I see your URLEncode doesn't have a closing parenthesis, does the formula you are using have the closing parenthesis where it is in your script? If it doesn't if you close the URL encode do you still run into issues?
