I Know there's a 260 character limitation aboud SharePoint 2010 URL. However, I found a quote in this article:
these limitations apply only to un-encoded URLs, not to encoded URLs. There is no limit to encoded URLs in SharePoint Server 2010.
Then I tried to use httpUtility.UrlPathEncode (in client object model) to encode my url, and still give me a 414 REQUEST IS TOO LONG exception.
I'm confused now. Anyone can help me ?

Friday, March 16, 2012 1:27 PMIf the unencoded url is longer than 260 then it will not work - even if you encode it. If the unencoded Url is shortern than 260 and you encode it, then it does not matter if the encoded one is > 260 or not. It will always work. thats what the statement means. So encoding is not a way to overcome the 260 char limit. it just means you don't have to bother about the url becoming longer when encoding.
