Any expert who know Pascal...

I want to ask you what is the same function for string processing like in pascal called: Delete (String, StartPos, Count). Is there any function like that in VB?
if yes, please let me know.
if no, would you make that function for me?

As usual, need a guidance.

Best regards

Stinger

insert 2 texts and two command buttons in a form , then paste the following:


Public Sub delete(strTemp As String, nStart As Integer, nCount As Integer)
    If nStart > Len(strTemp) Then
            'Even you return an error
        strTemp = "Error"
            'Or just return the same string
        'strTemp = strTemp
        Exit Sub
    End If
    nlong = nStart + nCount
    If nlong > Len(strTemp) Then
            'Even you return an error
        'strTemp = "Error"
        'Exit Function
            'or you just delete what you can
        nlong = Len(strTemp)
    End If
    strTemp = Left(strTemp, nStart - 1) + Right(strTemp, Len(strTemp) - nlong + 1)
   

End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim strT As String
strT = Text1.Text
delete strT, 10, 5
Text2.Text = strT
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Text1.Text = ""
Text2.Text = ""
End Sub

Now enter the text you want to delete in text1 , then click command1 , the deleted text will be in text2 , the function will be called as delete(text1.text,10,5) , that means it will delete 5 characters from text1 , starting at position 10 ,
if you want to try again , click command2
