Examples

The following code example shows how to use the WriteEncodedText method to write the encoded markup &lt;custID&gt; &amp; &lt;invoice#&gt; to the output stream. The WriteBreak method writes <br />.

// Assign a value to a string variable,
// encode it, and write it to a page.
colHeads = "<custID> & <invoice#>"; 
writer.WriteEncodedText(colHeads);
writer.WriteBreak();
' Assign a value to a string variable,
' encode it, and write it to a page.
colHeads = "<custID> & <invoice#>" 
writer.WriteEncodedText(colHeads)
writer.WriteBreak()

Remarks

Use the WriteEncodedText method when a string contains angle brackets (< or >) or an ampersand (&).

The WriteEncodedText method uses the HtmlEncode method to perform the encoding and also converts Unicode character 00A0 to &nbsp;.
