Chr Function

Returns the character associated with the specified ANSI character code.


The charcode argument is a number that identifies a character.


Numbers from 0 to 31 are the same as standard, nonprintable ASCII codes. For example, Chr(10) returns a linefeed character.

The following example uses the Chr function to return the character associated with the specified character code:

Dim MyChar
MyChar = Chr(65)   ' Returns A.
MyChar = Chr(97)   ' Returns a.
MyChar = Chr(62)   ' Returns >.
MyChar = Chr(37)   ' Returns %.
Note   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. ChrW is provided for 32-bit platforms that use Unicode characters. Its argument is a Unicode (wide) character code, thereby avoiding the conversion from ANSI to Unicode.
