decodeURI Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)


Returns the unencoded version of an encoded Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).


The required URIstring argument is a value representing an encoded URI.

Use the decodeURI method instead of the obsolete unescape method.

The decodeURI method returns a string value.

If the URIString is not valid, a URIError occurs.
