    Now, you have to create the encoded URL. You must know that each character of the URL will have its own encoding series which you have to follow in order to get the desired results. For example, in this URL “var url =”, you can see the colon between the first and last names of the user.

    Then, you must forward the user. After encoding the URL, you will have to embed it in your own script which you wrote so as to redirect it. You will not be able to encode your URL in the JV until or unless you embed your script with the encoded URL. Besides, you have to follow the above mentioned steps in sequence, otherwise the code will not execute the required results. In order to send the user to the encoded URL, you can use the code “windows.location.href=url;” in your programme.
