s A string containing escaped characters.
e The text encoding to use.


Converts URL-friendly escape sequences back to normal text.

Certain text characters have special meanings when present in URLs. If you need to include those characters in URL parameters then you must represent them with escape sequences. This function takes a string containing these escape sequences and converts them back to normal text.

function Start () {
    // Plain name is "Fish & Chips".
    var plainName = WWW.UnEscapeURL('Fish+%26+Chips');
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { void Start() { string plainName = WWW.UnEscapeURL("Fish+%26+Chips"); } }
