Python urlencode querystring

I am trying to urlencode this string before I submit.

queryString = 'eventName=' + evt.fields["eventName"] + '&' + 'eventDescription=' + evt.fields["eventDescription"];

Answer

You need to pass your parameters into urlencode() as either a mapping (dict), or a sequence of 2-tuples, like:

>>> import urllib
>>> f = { 'eventName' : 'myEvent', 'eventDescription' : "cool event"}
>>> urllib.urlencode(f)
'eventName=myEvent&eventDescription=cool+event'
