Replacing backslash with forward slash in a string

Hi,

How do i replace a backslash with a forward slash in a string?

say... C:\apple\test to C:/apple/test

i know the string replace method can do this...but i am kinda of lost when replacing characters like / \ * |
if possible please provide a sample on the function based on my problem....thanks

Replace works fine:

        Dim s As String = "C:\test\it"
        MsgBox(s.Replace("\", "/"))

Sorry,

I had trouble with my notifs yesterday.

I can't see how it's not working..

I just tested

        Dim s As String = "file:///C:\testing\123"
        MessageBox.Show(s.Replace("\", "/"))

in VS 2003 and 2005 and both produced results as expected...
