Converts a URI string to its escaped representation.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
The method converts all characters, except RFC 3986 reserved and unreserved characters, to their hexadecimal representation. All Unicode characters are converted to UTF-8 format before being escaped.
This method assumes that stringToEscape has no escape sequences in it.
The string is escaped according to RFC 3986. See this RFC for a definition of reserved and unreserved characters.
Use the method to prepare an unescaped URI string to be a parameter to the Uri constructor.
