static member UTF7 : Encoding with get

Property Value

Type: System.Text.Encoding
An encoding for the UTF-7 format.

UTF-7 encoding is used primarily in environments that historically have been restricted to 7 bits, such as NNTP and some email applications. Because of issues with robustness and security, you should not use UTF7 encoding in 8-bit environments where UTF-8 encoding can be used instead.

The following example determines the number of bytes required to encode a character array, encodes the characters, and displays the resulting bytes.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
