ENCODEURL( some-value )

Arguments

  • some-value (of any type)

Return Value

Text: the content of some-value encoded for safe use within a URL. 

Encoding removes any special meaning the individual characters within some-value might have when used within a URL.

For safety, all characters that aren't letters or numbers are subject to encoding.
