URL encoding ensures that all browsers will correctly transmit text in URL strings. Characters such as a question mark (?), ampersand (&), slash mark (/), and spaces might be truncated or corrupted by some browsers. As a result, these characters must be encoded in <a> tags or in query strings where the strings can be re-sent by a browser in a request string.

UrlPathEncode is a convenient way to access the HttpUtility::UrlPathEncode method at run time from an ASP.NET application. Internally, UrlPathEncode uses HttpUtility::UrlPathEncode to encode strings.

The following example URL-encodes a string and then sends it to a browser client. In this example, the string MyURL is encoded as " = ASP.NET Examples".
