Advertisements

This method turns an object into its URL-encoded query string representation.

This is a form of serialization, and is mostly useful to provide complex parameter sets for stuff such as objects in the Ajax namespace (e.g. Ajax.Request).

Syntax:

Object.toQueryString(obj);

Return Value :

  • Returns an encoded string.

Example:

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>
<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>

<script>

function showResult(){

   var o = { action: 'ship', order_id: 123, 
             fees: ['f1', 'f2'], 'label': 'a demo' };

   alert("URI: " + Object.toQueryString(o) );
}

</script>
</head>

<body>

  <p>Click the button to see the result.</p>
  <br />
  <br />
  <input type="button" value="Result" onclick="showResult();"/>

</body>
</html>

To understand it in better way you can Try it yourself.
