HttpUtility.HtmlAttributeEncode Method (String)

Minimally converts a string to an HTML-encoded string.

Namespace: System.Web
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public static string HtmlAttributeEncode (
	string s
public static String HtmlAttributeEncode (
	String s
public static function HtmlAttributeEncode (
	s : String
) : String



The string to encode.

Return Value

An encoded string.

The HtmlAttributeEncode method converts only quotation marks ("), ampersands (&), and left angle brackets (<) to equivalent character entities. It is considerably faster than the HtmlEncode method.

The string result from the HtmlAttributeEncode method should be used only for double-quoted attributes. Security issues might arise when using the HtmlAttributeEncode method with single-quoted attributes.
