String(number, character)

Description

String returns a string created by concatenating a given number of a specified character. The required argument, number, is any valid numeric expression. The required argument, character, is a character or string expression whose first character is repeated in the returned string.

HTML formatting rules apply to strings being output in fields which support HTML. In particular, multiple spaces are rendered as a single space. So, while you may insert several spaces in your string, using 'Print string' will display them as they were a single space. Use the string '&nsbp;' to force a space to appear.

Example

Rem String Example
'String creates a string repeating a character
Dim Message
Message = String(10, "Hello World!")
Print Message
Message = String(10, Chr(Asc("i")))
Print Message

Output

HHHHHHHHHH
iiiiiiiiii
