Even easier: http://www.dotnetperls.com/reverse-string

public static string ReverseString(string s)
    {
	char[] arr = s.ToCharArray();
	Array.Reverse(arr);
	return new string(arr);
    }

the function returns the reversed string but throwing an error after that

Line: 117
Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'

and in the debug

line 117 is
doc.addEventListener("DOMNodeInserted", onDOMNodeInserted, false);

I tried the vb function

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Response.Write(ReverseString("abcdefgh"))
    End Sub

    Function ReverseString(ByVal s As String) As String
        Dim arr() As Char = s.ToCharArray
        Array.Reverse(arr)
        Return New String(arr)
    End Function
