Hi there,

I need help escaping backslashes on a file download in vb.net with javascript. The file I am downloading is like this:

\\Faheem-i5\recordings\TTGILBetterValue\20130122_195234_006387_1633548400.wav

the file is being downloaded but being named as follows:

_Faheem-i5 ecordingsTTGILBetterValue�30122_195234_006387_1633548400

Can anyone explain to me why this is happening and how do i escape the double backslashes and single backslashes from the string.

Thanks

yes, u can do it with javascript:
var file_name = "\\Faheem\songs\TTGILBetterValue\000000.wav";
file_name = file_name.replace(/\\/g, "");
 
// NOTE: make sure that file_name contains \r, \n, \t chars or not...
