Overview

Small tool for escaping strings to be used in URLStringEncoded context.

Uses VBScript escape() and unescape() functions and an HTML Application GUI to enable copy and paste of the text.

It is a very simple tool I developed for my customers which needed a very easy way to encode texts to use in a proprietary CMS environments.

Useful to generate strings for HTTP request tests.

I use it to encode text to be sent to a Shockwave Flash object embedded in a web page.
Sample documentation and files are provided with the project files.

Download

Downloads and additional documentation in the project page in Sourceforge.net

Installation

No installation required. Just run the executable, it will unzip the files to the temporary folder and run the main application file, which is a standalone HTML Application (hta file). The rest of the bundled files are used for skinning the interface.

The interface itself is a demonstration of embedding a CSS skinned HTML Application into a self extracting Zip file.

Usage

Just write in the upper text box and press the Escape button.
