The code above is in c#... do you have a problem with your code or do you want it in ? code of example above
Public Function URLDecode(ByVal What As String) As Object 

    Dim functionReturnValue As Object = Nothing 

    Dim Pos As Integer 

    Dim pPos As Integer 

    What = What.ToString().Replace("+", " ") 

    Dim Stream As New StringReader(What) 

    Dim Err As ErrorEventArgs 

    If Convert.ToInt64(Err) = 0 Then 

        Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", 1) 

        pPos = 1 

        While Pos > 0 

            pPos = Pos + 3 

            Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", pPos) 

        End While 

        Stream.WriteText(Strings.Mid(What, pPos)) 

        Stream.Position = 0 

        functionReturnValue = Stream.ReadToEnd() 




        Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", 1) 

        While Pos > 0 

            What = Strings.Left(What, Pos - 1) + Strings.Chr(CLng("&H") + Strings.Mid(What, Pos + 1, 2)) + Strings.Mid(What, Pos + 3) 

            Pos = Pos + 1 

            Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", Pos) 

        End While 

        functionReturnValue = What 

    End If 

    Stream = Nothing 

    Return functionReturnValue 

End Function

You don't have to do all this. There is a ready-made .net function for this:
public string URLDecode(string What)


       return System.Web.HttpUtility.UrlDecode(What);
