Has someone function/procedure for converting strings to URL validated text?

for example to convert

http://www.somesite.com is "the best"

to

http%3A%2F%2Fwww.somesite.com+is+%22the+best%22

thanks in advance.

Hi,

do you mean something like that?:

Function StringToUrl(S : String) : String;
VAR
 z : Integer;
Begin
 Result := '';
 For z := 1 to Length(s) do
 Begin
  Case s[z] Of
   ' '  : Result := Result + '+';
   ':'  : Result := Result + '%' + IntToHex(Ord(':'), 2);
   '/'  : Result := Result + '%' + IntToHex(Ord('/'), 2);
   '"'  : Result := Result + '%' + IntToHex(Ord('"'), 2);
   else   Result := Result + s[z];
  End;
 End;
End;

Function URLToString(Url : String) : String;
VAR
 z      : Integer;
 hexStr : String;
Begin
 Result := '';
 z := 1;
 While z <= Length(Url) do
 Begin
  Case URL[z] Of
   '+'  : Result := Result + ' ';
   '%'  : Begin
           Result := Result + Chr(StrToInt('$' + URL[z +1] + URL[z +2]));
           Inc(z, 2);
          End;
   else   Result := Result + URL[z];
  End;
  Inc(z);
 End;
End;
