My question is this, I have a to Text boxes. One which you put data into and the second displays the result.

Now when I press a button my program will convert normall ASCII code to Hex but the Hex must stay on ONE line and must have around it other PRE SET info which would be displayed once I press the button.

So it would like this.

LINE 1
LINE 2
LINE 3 'HEX CODE ALSO GOES ON LINE 3 BETWEEN '...' LIKE I HAVE IT HERE'
LINE 4



How do I do this?

My code:

Dim lp As Integer
Dim length As Integer
Dim newstring As String
Dim holder As String
length = Len(Text1.Text)
If length > 0 Then
newstring = ""
  For lp = 1 To length
    holder = "%" & Hex(Asc(Mid$(Text1.Text, lp, 1)))
    newstring = newstring & holder
    Text2.Text = newstring
  Next lp
Else
  Text2.Text = ""
End If

you can put it all on the outside of your for loop:


For lp = 1 To length
    holder = "%" & Hex(Asc(Mid$(Text1.Text, lp, 1)))
    newstring = newstring & holder
Next lp

Text2.Text = "HEX CODE ALSO GOES ON LINE 3 BETWEEN " & newstring & " LIKE I HAVE IT HERE"

ok i dont know javascript but if you are merely trying to print this to a textbox (assuming you have it set as multiline) then try this:

Text2.Text = "<Script Language='Javascript'>" & vbCrLf & "<!--" & vbCrLf & "eval(unescape(" & newstring & "));" & vbCrLf & "//-->" & vbCrLf & "</Script>"
