In VB 6.0 is there a built in function to perform the functionality that is provided in the .NET version of stringbuilder?

stringbuilder sb

sb.AppendFormat(variable{0}, 5}

which would produce the value "variable5"

Thanks.

No.  You can write your own, but it would not come close to the speed of the StringBuilder.

lunchbyte,
You may want to test that...

perhaps we are refering to the add method itself...

In which case i had this bite sized chunklet in my library..

Dim t as new cStringBuilder
t.additem( Var1)
t.additem( var2)
msgbox t.getText


public Class cStringBuilder

private iCollection as new collection
Public Sub AddItem (ItemText as string)
icollection.add(Itemtext)
end sub
Public Sub ResetCollection
Icollection=new collection
end sub
public function GetText as string
gettext=MakeStringFromCollection(iCollection)
end function
private function MakeStringFromCollection(MakeStringCollection as collection,optional terminator as string =vbcrlf) as string
dim t as integer
dim tRet as string
for t= 0 to MakeStringCollection.count-1
tret=tret+MakeStringCollection(t) & terminator
next t
MakeStringFromCollection=tRet
end function

end class
