Interesting.  I cannot find any either.

I think there is probably some dark mysterious reason for that, but, in the meantime, if you just want to get a nsAString back from a function, pass one in as a reference, modifying it internally.  EG

void Function ( nsAString& strIN )
{
     // Modify strIN here
}

Thanks. That works.

By the way, do you know how to convert .NET String to nsAString? Any example will be helpful.

Glad to help.

Without extensive research I cannot give you complete code to do this.  However, you can get a char* from a System.String (I assume that is what you mean when you say .NET string) by following the extensive advice here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311259.  And according to https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XPCOM_string_guide, you can use nsDependentString to convert char* to nsAString(https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XPCOM_string_guide#Raw_Character_Pointers).
