Converts a string into a Unicode string.

 String* str
public static function UrlEncodeUnicode(
   str : String
) : String;


The string to convert.

Return Value

The Unicode string in %XXXX notation.


If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. URL encoding converts characters that are not valid in a URL to character-entity equivalents; URL decoding reverses the encoding. For example, when embedded in a block of text to be transmitted in a URL, the characters < and > are encoded as %3c and %3d.
