I need to encode a Uri with a few params and provide values. But I don't want to continue to struggle transating excape characters.

Could someone please explain how to use this?

I have the domain and wo variables:

un=username
ts=timeastamp

Thanks,

Server.UrlEncode() and Server.UrlDecode() exist expressly for this purpose.  Encode and send along your querystring, then decode when you request on the other side.

I was hoping for an example where you could use Encode with the two variables (and values) I posted above.

If url is http://www.mysite.com?un=username&ts=timestamp

If you want to encode the ENTIRE url:

string url = "http://www.mysite.com?un=username&ts=timestamp";
string encodedUrl = Server.UrlEncode(url);

If you want to encode ONLY the username and timestamp:

string uname = "username";
DateTime timestamp = DateTime.Now;

string url = string.Format("http://www.mysite.com?un={0}&ts={1}", Server.UrlEncode(uname), Server.UrlEncode(tstamp.ToShortDateString());
