HttpUtility::HtmlAttributeEncode Method (String^, TextWriter^)


Minimally converts a string into an HTML-encoded string and sends the encoded string to a TextWriter output stream.

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

static void HtmlAttributeEncode(
	String^ s,
	TextWriter^ output


Type: System::String^

The string to encode

Type: System.IO::TextWriter^

A TextWriter output stream.

The HtmlAttributeEncode method converts only quotation marks ("), ampersands (&), and left angle brackets (<) to equivalent character entities. It is considerably faster than the HtmlEncode method.

The string result from the HtmlAttributeEncode method should be used only for double-quoted attributes. Security issues might arise when using the HtmlAttributeEncode method with single-quoted attributes.
