[.net] URL Escape code problem

Recommended Posts

When I assing the following url to a asp:hyperlink control file://C:/docs/document structure.doc it produces the following link in the webpage file://C:/docs/document%2520structure.doc which obviously does not work. I was expecting a %20 (escaping the space) but it is also escaping the % sign too! How do I stop this behaviour and get the link to work properly?

Worked out what was wrong.

If I put an extra slash after file: it works fine. It was something to do with IE escaping the %20 not .net

file:///C:/docs/document structure.doc
