Re: mailto command is adding "+" characters to my message

Interesting. It worked perfectly for me. It's launching in the mail app on iOS.

 

Thanks!

Re: mailto command is adding "+" characters to my message

@NK-CSC I tried with the &subject rather than ?subject but iOS Mail just jams the whole thing into the To: line.

 

Launch("mailto:support@email.com&subject=Help with My App")

 

results in:

 

To: mailto:support@email.com&subject=Help with My App

Subject: [blank]

Re: mailto command is adding "+" characters to my message

Any update on this?

 

if using Launch("mailto:email@email.com?subject=Something goes here")

 

It opens mail(on win 10 😃 and works but as the + in between the words for subject.

 

if using Launch("mailto:email@email.com&subject=Something goes here")

 

it opens mail(on win 10) but it just ends up with the email addrees including the subject wording all as one and no subject line.

Re: mailto command is adding "+" characters to my message

 

The Launch command takes optional parameters in the following format;

 

Launch("address", "name", "value", "name", "value"....)  where name/value pairs are queries passed to a web URL.

 

We tend to put the whole "mailto:blahblah?subject=etc" into the address field, when actually you should use the Launch optional query parameters to pass in what you need, so;

 

address is the URL containing the mailto command and email address

Each name/value pair is a query parameter with it's value

 

Example:

 

Launch("mailto:bobjones@home.com", "subject", "Here's a subject line", "body", "Hello,

How are you?



Line breaks are just carriage returns and spaces remain spaces!")

 

I've tested this with Chrome and Edge (Edge was giving me headaches originally) and it works fine.  I haven't tested all the RFC stated parameters or attachments yet but this works and no annoying +'s!

 

Hope this helps someone

 

Kind regards,

Re: mailto command is adding "+" characters to my message

@NK-CSC Thanks much for the solution but when i use the same... the subject and body appears in the To field itself.....

 

i am using chrome to launch and outlook email.

 

The Code i am using is Launch("mailto:"&DataCardValue29_3.Text&"&subject="&DataCardValue10_3.Text)
