Base64 Encoding

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

This is part of GeneXusCryptography Module Encoders. It encodes and decodes the Base64 representation of characters on Strings. It is based on Bouncy Castle Base64 Encoder

Base64Encoder

ToBase64

Base64Encoder.ToBase64(text)
  • Input: VarChar(256) plain text
  • Returns: VarChar(256) Base64 encoded

Receives a  plain text and returns the Base64 encoded representation of that text.

It uses UTF-8 by default unless CryptographyEncodingUtil is used.

Example: 

&base64Text = &Base64Encoder.ToBase64("hello world")

ToPlainText

Base64Encoder.ToPlainText(base64Text)
  • Input: VarChar(256) Base64 encoded
  • Returns: VarChar(256) plain text

Receives a Base64 encoded text and returns the UTF-8 encoded plain text representation of that text.

It uses UTF-8 by default unless CryptographyEncodingUtil is used.

Example:

&plainText = &Base64Encoder.ToPlainText("aGVsbG8gd29ybGQ=")

ToStringHexa

Base64Encoder.ToStringHexa(base64Text)
  • Input: VarChar(256) Base64 encoded text
  • Returns: VarChar(256) hexadecimal representation of a text

Receives a Base64 encoded text and returns the hexadecimal representation of that text.

Example:

&hexaText = &Base64Encoder.ToStringHexa("aGVsbG8gd29ybGQ")

FromStringHexaToBase64

Base64Encoder.ToStringHexaToBase64(stringHexa)
  • Input: VarChar(256) hexadecimal representation of a text
  • Returns: VarChar(256) Base64 encoded text

Recieves the hexadecimal representation of a text and returns the base64 encoded text.

Example:

&base64Text = &Base64Encoder.ToStringHexaToBase64("68656C6C6F20776F726C64")
