String Length

 I have been trying to organize this listbox so that it parses a string into 3 parts and then adds it to a listbox using the vbtab function (if theres a better way please tell me) anyways i have it all parsed and everything and working until i notice that if someone has a couple "!" or "W" it gets out of whack and the columns are off so what i want to do is find the strings width/length.

'in visual basic, you would use len(variable)

'for example

dim str as string
str = "Hello Bob"
dim i as integer
i = len(str)
msgbox str(i)

'would give you a messagebox with something like "9"

'good luck.

';)

'in c++, i think it is str.length()
