Hi, I want to know how to make the following thing:

I have a text box and a command button. For example, I write "Hello" in the textbox. When I click the command button, I want the text to be "H+e+l+l+o" or "H*e*l*l*o". Something like that, but characters between characters. How can I do that? Thanks!
