VBScript String Literals
This brief guide demonstrates how to use string literals in VBScript.
In VBScript, you enclose strings with double quote characters, and you use the ampersand (
&) operator to concatenate strings. For example:
Dim s s = "Hello" s = "Hello" & " Rhino!"
What if you want to assign
"Hello Rhino!" (including the quotes) to the variables? In VBScript, you can use two double quote characters to include a double quote character in the string. For example:
Dim s s = "Hello Rhino!"
Alternatively you can use the
Dim s s = Chr(34) & "Hello Rhino" & Chr(34)
Or, to make your code more readable, you can write a function…
Function Quote(ByVal s) Quote = Null If (VarType(s) = vbString) Then Quote = Chr(34) & CStr(s) & Chr(34) End If End Function '... Dim s s = Quote("Hello Rhino!")
