Escape URL in user macro

I have a user macro in which I am generating a URL from a parameter and thus need to encode the value. I have tried the following, trying to use EscapeTool:


However, when the macro is rendered it is still showing as "$esc.url($paramText)".

I have tried all of the options for "macro body processing" and no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

$generalUtil.urlEncode($paramText) should work :)

Works great! Thank you
