Hi,

Till now I was thinking HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(" ") was a space. But the below code always returns false.

string text = " ";
 
text = HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(text);
 
string space = " ";
 
if (String.Compare(space, text) == 0)
  return true;
else
  return false;


Same when I try with Server.HtmlDecode()

Why is it so?

Any help would be much appreciated

What is the value of text after the call to HtmlDecode()?

Solution 1

You use htmlEncode to encode the string
You use htmlDecode to decode the string,

The encoding/decoding is done to remove whitespaces and special or escaped characters.

(" ") is simply non-breaking space 


try this and see what you get

 
string text = " ";
string space = "";
 
text = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(text);
space = HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(text);
 
if (String.Compare(space, text) == 0)
  return true;
else
  return false;
