There are 255 characters in the ascii code right?  well I'd like to know how to programatically get a char based on a number I give.

i.e. if I give it 16 then the letter A pops out (I'm sure that not right but you get the gyst)

Ok so given a number you can do this

int i = 16;
char myChar = Convert.toChar(i);

You can also do the opposite with Convert.toInt()

Hope this helps.

Oh, no defintiely not 255, it accepts extended codes as well. I don't know the upper limit. But definitely much more than 255
