If you are making a IIS application it should already be available to you.  If not you may want to look at this function that someone has already written, that will do it for you.  Here is the link...

Server.URLEncode is not part of VBScript.

The Server object is part of ASP...-not- part of VB.

Understand that methods of objects are part of that object, -not- part of the language you happen to be programming in.

ASP can be written in JavaScript just as easily, and COM objects can be used by any language that supports COM (C++, VC++, VB, Java, I think).

Add a reference to Microsoft ASP library in your project and it will expose Server, Session, etc...but they will not work unless they are passed from a real Session on a IIS server into your project.  You cannot set them to new objects.  I do not know the reasoning behind it as I have never looked into it.  I haven't ever had a need to use the ASP object library without a IIS Server.

It's not actually a very difficult function, you could write your own along the lines of:

Public Function URLEncode(ByVal s As String) As String

    Dim lLoop As Long
    Dim sC As String

    URLEncode = ""
    For lLoop = 1 To Len(s)
        sC = Mid$(s, lLoop, 1)
        If InStr("0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ", UCase$(sC)) = 0 Then
            If Asc(sC) < 16 Then
                sC = "%0" & Hex$(Asc(sC))
            Else
                sC = "%" & Hex$(Asc(sC))
            End If
        End If
       
        URLEncode = URLEncode & sC
    Next
   
End Function

AndyClap --
  Its true that the specs aren't hard to handle, but since the original question was so far off the mark, I was trying to explain what he was really asking.
  Trying to use an ASP-created object as an intrinic property of VB begs for clarification.

If you didn't like the responses you had gotten from us so far, you should have requested a deletion of the question or held out for whatever you were looking for.  This is the third time someone I responded who couldn't do what they were asking for and I told them that, and gotten a grade of C for it.  I would have rather not helped you at all.  I don't think I'll be responding to questions that do not have a valid answer anymore.  There were two answers to this, one You Cant Include the ASP Object Library in a VB Stand Alone Application, or write your own replacement function.  You have gotten both of them from me, and another from Andy.
