    Question Can not browse to web page containing '~' sign

    Hello all,

    The default browser both mobile device(N73) and emulator of 2nd ed FP2 S60 SDK and 3rd ed S60 SDK MR can not browse to the webpage that name contain symbol '~' as shown below.

    http://stweb.ait.ac.th/~st105000

    Moreover, The example app, "Http Client Example" that GET and POST the detail in web page, also can not browse this.

    So, I would like to know how to parse '~' as a part of URL to let app browse to that page.

    Please give me some advice.

    Thank you for your kind reply

    Re: Can not browse to web page containing '~' sign

    Hello kittinut_k

    Have you tried this URL on 3rd party browsers?
    Opera or Mini opera (They are different mind you) Give it a try...
    Some URLS that donot open in the default browser can be opened in these with out much problem...

    Hope that helps

    ~ is not a very safe URL character. You can always encode it as %7e, eg. browse to http://stweb.ait.ac.th/%7est105000/ .

    Thank you for all answer that encourage me,

    I think the 3rd party browsers is a useful one, but I would like to know whether it can be the part of my writen app. because I have to create app to view the image in the server.

    I try to use %7e rather than ~ ,but it can not show the web page , though Internet explorer can show by using it.
