DIY Html encode your source code for your blog


A very lightweight tool to HTML encode your source-code (or anything really) and surround it in a pre-block. Perfect for posting on your website or blog.

private void btnEncode_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var sb = new StringBuilder();
    sb.AppendLine("<pre>");
    sb.AppendLine(WebUtility.HtmlEncode(rtxt.Text));
    sb.AppendLine("</pre>");
    rtxt.Text = sb.ToString();
    rtxt.SelectionStart = 0;
    rtxt.SelectionLength = rtxt.TextLength;
}

Basically just a wrapper around the WebUtility.HtmlEncode method and a GUI for ease of use.

You will need to do the GUI yourself and compile it. Look at Visual Studio Community Edition for a place to start.

Hope this helps someone out there ;)
