IDLnetURL::URLEncode

The IDLnetURL::Encode static function method encodes a string using "percent encoding" to escape reserved characters. This method is typically used to encode the value field in a name/value pair for HTTP get, put and post requests.

PRINT, value

IDL prints:

My%20JSON%20string%20is%3A%20%7B%22key%22%3A%22value%22%7D

Result = Obj->[IDLnetURL::]URLEncode( String )
