HttpUtility.UrlEncode Method (Byte[])

Converts a byte array into an encoded URL string.

Namespace: System.Web
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

'Declaration
Public Shared Function UrlEncode ( _
	bytes As Byte() _
) As String
'Usage
Dim bytes As Byte()
Dim returnValue As String

returnValue = HttpUtility.UrlEncode(bytes)
public static String UrlEncode (
	byte[] bytes
)

	bytes : byte[]
) : String
Not applicable.

Parameters

bytes

The array of bytes to encode.

Return Value

An encoded string.

If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. URL encoding converts characters that are not allowed in a URL into character-entity equivalents; URL decoding reverses the encoding. For example, when embedded in a block of text to be transmitted in a URL, the characters < and > are encoded as %3c and %3e.
