PHP has an implode function with concatenates an array with a given delimeter to a string. This is the exact opposite of the Split() function in VB. Does VB have a similar function?

Example:
array[1] = Bob
array[2] = Fred
array[3] = Mary

implode (array, ",") returns: Bob,Fred,Mary

Hi DrDamnit,

use the Join function

from MSDN:

Join(sourcearray[, delimiter])

The Join function syntax has these named arguments:

sourcearray Required. One-dimensional array containing substrings to be joined.
delimiter Optional. String character used to separate the substrings in the returned string. If omitted, the space character (" ") is used. If delimiter is a zero-length string (""), all items in the list are concatenated with no delimiters.

Hi Dr

the implode is the same as join in vb

so

arrnames(0) = "Bob"
arrnames(1) = "Fred"
arrnames(2) = "Mary"

join(arrnames,",")

would return

Bob,Fred,Mary
