HttpServerUtility.UrlDecode Method (String, TextWriter)

.NET Framework 1.1

Decodes an HTML string received in a URL and sends the resulting output to a TextWriter output stream.

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Sub UrlDecode( _
   ByVal s As String, _
   ByVal output As TextWriter _
)
[C#]
public void UrlDecode(
 string s,
 TextWriter output
);
[C++]
public: void UrlDecode(
 String* s,
 TextWriter* output
);
[JScript]
public function UrlDecode(
   s : String,
 output : TextWriter
);

Parameters

s
The HTML string to decode.
output
The TextWriter output stream containing the decoded string.

Remarks

URL encoding ensures that all browsers will correctly transmit text in URL strings. Characters such as ?, &,/, and spaces may be truncated or corrupted by some browsers so those characters must be encoded in <A> tags or in query strings where the strings may be re-sent by a browser in a request string.

Example

The following example decodes the string named EncodedString (received in a URL) into the string named DecodedString.

[Visual Basic] 
Dim writer As New StringWriter
Server.UrlDecode(EncodedString, writer)
Dim DecodedString As String = writer.ToString()
   

[C#] 
StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
Server.UrlDecode(EncodedString, writer);
String DecodedString = writer.ToString();
   

[C++] 
StringWriter* writer = new StringWriter();
Server->UrlDecode(EncodedString, writer);
String* DecodedString = writer->ToString();
   

[JScript] 
var writer : StringWriter = new StringWriter()
Server.UrlDecode(encodedString, writer)
var decodedString : String = writer.ToString()
