Return the string character for ChrCode (Byte code.) With the rise of Unicode there is now rarely any need to use ChrB().

      ChrB (ChrCode)

ChrB (65) will return A

The ChrB function is used with byte data contained in a string. Instead of returning a character, which may be one or two bytes, ChrB always returns a single byte.

The behavior of the ChrB function depends on the byte ordering of the hardware platform, and the number of bytes used to represent Unicode characters in the system software. The function will produce different results on each supported operating system. Use with caution. The described behavior pertains to the Win32 version.


Dim strDemo
strDemo = ChrB (65)
> A
