I'm using the query string method for filtering records by a category. This works fine for a category with no spaces in the name like "Cabinets" or "Windows" but does not work for a category name with a space in it like "Electrical Services". 

default.aspx?cat=windows WORKS

default.aspx?cat=electrical services DOES NOT WORK

I think the problem is simply the querystring is URL encoded and that's what gets passed to the filter literally ... Is there any easy way around this? Can I use some form of URL decode in the filter setting, or another approach? 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,
Use HttpUtility.UrlEncode to encode the query string value, then use HttpUtility.UrlDecode to decode it. It should put a %20 in for the space. Or you could do your own kind of replacement and put a - in for spaces to make it a little more readable.
Thanks,
Mike

Thanks for the reply Mike, I guess I should have added I'm doing this in DNN Form and List module, specifically the Filter option.

I generate a dynamic list of categories (grouping on a field) with links that take you to another list of those individual item records .. sometimes the category name has a space. So I'm trying to do something equivelent to using a UrlDecode in the Filer statement of FnL.

No luck so far ... perhaps not possible
