See Page Not Found — Xojo documentation
You’ll find a code sample with this line in it:
Dim url As String = "https://%22 + host
That should read, however, as:
Dim url As String = "https://" + host
There’s a bug in the renderer for Xojo code. It seems to think that “/” is an escaping lead char and changes the double quote char into a quoted code. That’s clearly wrong.
Has someone looked into that? If not, let me have a look at the code and I’ll get it fixed.
I see what you did there. You worked around the bug instead of fixing it.
Sneaky but efficient. Kind of a elite operation - I wished it would be fixed at the source because I was not able to figure out how to fix this, i.e. it’s not obvious. But then, hardly anyone edits the docs anyway, so it’s not that big of a deal anyway, I guess.
Why is writing Quotes as Entity a “workaround”?
I am just curious
There is a bug, and instead of fixing the bug, Paul has added a wrapper around the quote char, telling the renderer not to interpret it. That avoids the misinterpretation, and is therefore a work-around, as it does not address the actual bug.
