decodeURI

decodeURI(String): String

Decodes the escape sequences (such as %20) in a URI.

The function replaces each escape sequence in the encoded URI with the character that it represents, but does not decode escape sequences that could not have been introduced by encodeURI. The character # is not decoded from escape sequences.

Parameters

Name Description

text

The URI to decode.

Example

This example decodes a URI that contains the URL percent encoding %20, which is used for spaces.

Source

{
  "decodeURI" : decodeURI('http://asd/%20text%20to%20decode%20/text')
}

Output

{
  "decodeURI": "http://asd/ text to decode /text"
}
