Difference between ChrW in VB6 and ChrW in vb.net 2005?
Posted on 2010-09-09
I have a problem with ChrW i vb.Net 2005. It seems that the ChrW behaves differently in vb.Net than in vb6.
In vb.Net I have a toolbox control (in this case called AxWillettPrinter1), to which I pass some unicode characters, with the help of ChrW command:
AxWillettPrinter1.FeedBufferMultiLingual(e.name.ToString, ChrW(&H660) & ChrW(&H661) & ChrW(&H662) & ChrW(&H663) & ChrW(&H664) & ChrW(&H665))
I do exactly the same in vb6 (here the toolbox control is called BP):
BP.FeedBufferMultiLingual("Buffer1", ChrW(&H660) & ChrW(&H661) & ChrW(&H662) & ChrW(&H663) & ChrW(&H664) & ChrW(&H665))
The funny thing is that vb6 do exactly as expected, but in vb.net I only see what appears to be an empty string.
Could anyone clarify this for me?
