Skipping "%" in file name

Post by Maciej Tokarski » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:43 am

Hi,
We set the full output path for pdf report via API:

m_pPrinter->Option[L"Save.File"] = fullpath;

Our testers observed that whenever the path contains a single "%" the character is simply removed from path/name. I know "%" has to do with macros, but I was sure it will properly recognize "%[...]" pattern, it seems it always uses "%" as a special character though. I did some further testing and could notice, that if we use double "%%" it's converted to single "%". Could you please confirm it? Is it enough to simply replace every "%" with double "%%" in a path before passing it to the option Save.File for it to work correctly? I couldn't find it in your documentation somehow.

Regards,
Maciej
