Is it possible to use Server.HTMLEncode in a business object, or does it always have to be called from a page?  If possible, what's the syntax?

Thanks for input.  I'm not exactly sure what you meant.

I'm parsing your comment as
"add  reference to System.Web"

I'm using VB, and   "Imports System.Web" doesn't seem to do it.   Any further suggestions?

sorry for my poor English

"Imports System.Web"  is not enough,
first ,right click the ‘Reference’ option under the project inside the solution explorer and select the ‘Add Reference…’ option.
It will show you a user interface screen where you browse for the target assembly.
Now you can select the System.Web assembly,  and then press OK.

Thanks for the input.   I found the "add reference" menu, and did that, and then, experimenting, I got it to work without adding the reference or even an "imports" like this.....

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class ServerHTMLEncodeTest
      Public Function MyHTMLEncode(ByVal varStr As String) As String
            Return System.Web.HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(varStr)
      End Function
End Class

Anyway, we got there.

Thanks!
