VB6 Find and replace text in textbox

Hey guys,

I am using VB6 to write a small utility and I have to find a way to do one of 2 things.

#1  Find and replace percent signs (%) with double percent signs (%%) in VB6


text1.text = test%test%test  AFTER FIND AND REPLACE WITH text1.text = test%%test%%test


#2 Have percent signs in a BAT file be have them treated as a string. I cant figured out how to denote the password, that contains a percent sign, as a string.

Any ideas?
