Type: System.String

The hexadecimal representation of a character.

Type: System.Int32

The location in pattern where the hexadecimal representation of a character begins.

The character represented by the hexadecimal encoding at position index. If the character at index is not hexadecimal encoded, the character at index is returned. The value of index is incremented to point to the character following the one returned.

index is less than 0 or greater than or equal to the number of characters in pattern.

The following code example determines whether a character is hexadecimal encoded and, if so, writes the equivalent character to the console.

Dim testString As String = "%75"
Dim index As Integer = 0
If Uri.IsHexEncoding(testString, index) Then
    Console.WriteLine("The character is {0}", Uri.HexUnescape(testString, index))
    Console.WriteLine("The character is not hexadecimal encoded")
End If
