variables of variables (references)


I have a two string variable:
A = "I need this"
B = "A"

Ok, I need a function like this:
evaluate(B) -> "I need this"

thank all

Tengo una variable string y en otra variable string tengo almacenado el nombre de la primera, como puedo acceder al valor de la primera sabiendo su nombre desde el string de la segunda?

Un ejemplito.. A="lo que quiero saber" B="A" necesito una funcion, que ingresandole B me devuelva "lo que quiero saber"

I think you're going to need to be a little more descriptive as to what you are asking.


Well, if you want to you use that value in a sub procedure, you can do it like this

Call Evaluate(B)

then you have your sub procedure as follows

Private sub Evaluate(B as string)
'do whatever
End sub
Call Evaluate(B)

Private sub Evaluate(ByRef B as string)
    if (B = "A") then
        B = A
    elseif (B = "C") then
        B = C
    ' etc.
    end if
End sub

Is this what you want?

Good Luck!
