Hi,

I try to use a function proposed with org-protocol as explained in this link.
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-protocol.html#sec-2 

I would like to launch a pdf file in Acrobat Reader and to use org-store-
link.js to capture the full path of the document in an org file.I try to use 
what it was explained on the link I have already and I have a look on the 
following link. 
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/6810
It doesn't work as I expect.

 
As I just want to capture the full path of the file (example here is file.pdf 
in C:\Temp), I use the following javascript call org-store-link accessible in 
menu File of Acrobat Reader :
app.addMenuItem({cName:"org-store-link", cParent:"File",
		 cExec:"app.launchURL('org-protocol://store-link://'+ 
encodeURIComponent(this.URL));"});

I get the following string given to org-protocol:
org-protocol://store-link://file%3A%2F%2F%2FC%7C%2FTemp%2Ffile.pdf

There is several issue. The escaped character is not interpreted when feed in 
emacs and when I use C-c C-l (org-insert-link) I have the following 
proposition : 
file: (C|).

Then I try the following script, to get '/' character to feed org-protocol:
app.addMenuItem({cName:"org-store-link", cParent:"File",
		 cExec:"app.launchURL('org-protocol://store-link://'+ unescape
(encodeURIComponent(this.URL)).replace('|',':'));"});


I get the following the expected string :
org-protocol://store-link://file:///C:/Temp/File.pdf


Again when I use C-c C-l, I have the proposition : file: (C|).

I made the assumption that it is a problem of interpretation of '/'.Then I 
replace this character with "++".
app.addMenuItem({cName:"org-store-link", cParent:"File",
		 cExec:"app.launchURL('org-protocol://store-link://'+ unescape
(encodeURIComponent(this.URL)).replace('|',':').replace('\/','++','gi'));"});


Then I obtain the following string :
org-protocol://store-link://file:++++++C:++Temp++File.pdf


This time when I use C-c C-l, I have the proposition : 
file:++++++C:++Temp++File.pdf
So I can get the full path when I replace afterwards each '++' to '/'.

Quite tricky to get the final full link !!

Do you have a more direct and simplest way to get the direct right link ?

This indicates that .replace('|',':') didn't work out as expected and
org-protocol received

org-protocol://store-link://file%3A%2F%2F%2FC%7C%2FTemp%2Ffile.pdf
                                             ^^^

Maybe this could do the trick:

,----
| app.addMenuItem({cName:"org-store-link", cParent:"File",
|  		 cExec:"app.launchURL('org-protocol://store-link://'+ unescape
|  (encodeURIComponent(this.URL.replace('|',':'))));"});
`----

I.e. replace | by : in the original URL before encoding it.

Best,

Indeed  I get the corresponding character. 
org-protocol://store-link://file:///C:/Temp/file.pdf

The problem of the bad interpretation of the character "/" still remains when 
I go back to emacs. I get the following proposition when I use C-c C-l : file: 
(C:). 

Thank you for your help.
