New function

Hallo everybody.

I've writen a function (for personal use of course) to replace invalid chars with nothing and "spaces" with "underscores".

I've added this to the global object.functions.js. I had Problems with different Browsers (on Linux :) when downloading files or images.

Its simply a copy of the regexp found in buildAliasFromFile plus the replacement of "spaces" with "underscores".

Look at the code: /**

  • function replaces "invalid" webchars
  • @param name String the name to convert
  • @return String determined name "invalid" char free */

function replaceinvalidchars(name) { // replace spaces with _ var spaces = new RegExp(" "); spaces.ignoreCase = true; = true; name = name.replace(spaces,"_"); // clean name from any invalid characters var invalidChars = new RegExp("[ \/?&=\+#äöüß\\]"); invalidChars.ignoreCase = true; = true; return name.replace(invalidChars,""); }

Second I added

param.alias = replaceinvalidchars(param.alias) ;

to the image and file object.functions.js. In the global object.functions.js i replaced the regexp with

line 459: // clean name from any invalid characters return replaceinvalidchars(name);

It's very simple maybe somebody adds it to the antville code if needed. Maybe nobody needs it.

interesting to know that there are still troubles with some characters with some browsers with some systems.
