<% with $Magazine %>
<iframe src="{$Document.AbsoluteURL}&embedded=true" width="100%" height="842"></iframe>
<% end_with %>

if you check the above code, it print url as 'http://localhost/masapulari/assets/Uploads/dummy.pdf .
Magazine is a DataObject class and Document is File Type, as you see below.
Is there a way to print urlencode of $Document.AbsoluteURL?

class Magazine extends DataObject {

private static $db = array(
'Date' => 'Date',

private static $has_one = array(
'Photo' => 'Image',
'Document' => 'File'


class Magazine_Controller extends Page_Controller {

* An array of actions that can be accessed via a request. Each array element should be an action name, and the
* permissions or conditions required to allow the user to access it.
* <code>
* array (
* 'action', // anyone can access this action
* 'action' => true, // same as above
* 'action' => 'ADMIN', // you must have ADMIN permissions to access this action
* 'action' => '->checkAction' // you can only access this action if $this->checkAction() returns true
* );
* </code>
* @var array
private static $allowed_actions = array (

public function init() {

// Note: you should use SS template require tags inside your templates
// instead of putting Requirements calls here. However these are
// included so that our older themes still work

public function view(){
$params = $this->getURLParams();
$id = (int)$params['ID'];

$data = $this->Magazine($id);

return $this->customise(array(
))->renderWith(array( 'Magazine', 'Page'));

public function Magazine($id){
$data = DataObject::get_by_id('Magazine',$id);
return $data;
