Server.UrlEncode is used to encode a string. Often, it is used to encode urls.

Method "Server.UrlEncode" is working fine in asp.net pages or controls, but when you try to use it in a class written inside "App_Code" folder, for eg.

Server.UrlEncode("Some String");

it shows an error "The name 'Server' does not exist in the current context".

How to resolve it?

simply use the following code instead:

HttpContext.Current.Server.UrlEncode("Some String");
