Timo Ernst closed CB-2498.
--------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem

Wasn't a bug. Just had an unencoded whitespace in the url.

> I am using PhoneGap 2.4 for my iOS project.
> When opening external URL's in a new webview layer via JS call window.open(url, "_blank");,
this works well for "simple" URL's, e.g. "http://www.google.com".
> BUT
> more complicated URL's which include whitespaces and special characters are a problem.
To avoid this, I URL-encode them via this JavaScript-call:
> url = encodeURIComponent(url);
> This won't work with the InAppBrowser plugin. Instead I get an error message saying:
> webView:didFailLoadWithError - The operation couldn't be completed. (WebKitErrorDomain
error 101.)
> So, I looked into this and I noticed that the call to window.open(url, "_blank"); fails
with this error message if the url contains the "%" character, e.g. if a whitespace character
gets encoded to "%20".
> How can I work around this? Isn't this a bug?
> Update: I just tested the same app on Android with PhoneGap 2.3. Works like a charm.
So it's either an iOS issue or a problem with the latest PhoneGap release which is 2.4.
