Hi there

I have Option Explicit ON, Option Strict On, and the reference to VB6 has been removed. How do I enter a vbTab in string.


Thanks in advance

Hi there

thanks for the response.

I am coding ASP.NET in VB so the   will not work. Isn't that html coding?

As for the "\t", I tried adding it like so:

strMyString = "Hi there" & "\t" & "Me name is Comatoast"

and the "\t" is represented as a string not an ascii character.

comt00006,

  is the string for a white space in the html
so to represent
This is Experts    Exchange
you have to use
"This is Experts    Exchange"

I am trying to put text within a ListBox control.

You cannot use the Response object. I just tried it and my code goes like this:

lstMine.Items.Add(Response.Write("Hi there" & "   " & "Comatoast"))

This is an error without even compilling because the ListBox expects a string and does not recognize the Response.Write as a string.

Thanks though.

yes, it will cause an error
actually in listboxcontrol ( wich is rendered as html select ) i thinkg that you CAN NOT add tabs
the browse just trim the white spaces

in the textbox if you type "Experts       Exchange" it will render like this
so if you work with code behind just write

Dim tab as string = "    "; '4 white spaces
TextBox.Text = "Experts" + tab + "Exchange"
