Posted form fields becomes [Binary Data] insted of strings


#1

Hi every one,

I’m having problems with my Rails forms. When I submit a form that holds
strings containing letters like å,ä or ö then the strings in the params
variable are converted into [Binary Data]. Does anyone know why this
happens?

Thanks

I figured out why my params are populated with [Binary Data]. Letters
like å,ä, and ö are mutibyte charaters in the UTF8 format. In Rails
2.2.2 UTF8 is a default setting and since I use Eclipse/Aptana Studio,
my params (containing å,ä,ö) are displayed as [Binary Data] when I
debug.
