Hi,

My question is
How to convert query parameter of an url to UTF-8 format.

I have an url string which containing some query parameters of Non Ascii character.When I covert these non Ascii character to UTF-8,
it becomes either "?" or some square symbols.


I want the non ascii character should maintain its state after conversion.

Please suggest some solution for this.

Regards,
Saumya

Welcome to the Ranch!

You can use URLEncoder and URLDecoder for this. Both allow you to specify the encoding then encoding / decoding.
