Description

• 

Escape converts a string into a URL-safe format by escaping unsafe characters. Escaping a string is often necessary if the string is going to be passed as part of a URL.

• 

Unescape converts a string in an escaped, URL-safe, format back to a string. It reverses the conversion performed by Escape.

• 

The Post method will automatically escape the given content if necessary.

Examples

URL:-EscapeHello World!

Hello%20World%21

(1)

URL:-UnescapeHello%20World%21

Hello World!

(2)
