The length of stringToEscape exceeds 32766 characters.

The EscapeUriString method converts all characters, except RFC 2396 reserved and unreserved characters, to their hexadecimal representation. All Unicode characters are converted to UTF-8 format before being escaped.

This method assumes that stringToEscape has no escape sequences in it.

The string is escaped according to RFC 2396. See this RFC for a definition of reserved and unreserved characters.

Use the EscapeUriString method to prepare an unescaped URI string to be a parameter to the Uri constructor.
