) As String
[C#]
public static string Concat(
 object arg0
);
[C++]
public: static String* Concat(
 Object* arg0
);
[JScript]
public static function Concat(
   arg0 : Object
) : String;

Parameters

arg0
An Object or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

The String representation of the value of arg0.

Remarks

An Empty string is used in place of any null argument.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example demonstrates the Concat method.

Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Class stringConcat5
   
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim i As Integer = - 123
      Dim o As [Object] = i
      Dim objs() As [Object] = {- 123, - 456, - 789}
      
      Console.WriteLine("Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:")
      Console.WriteLine("1) {0}", [String].Concat(o))
      Console.WriteLine("2) {0}", [String].Concat(o, o))
      Console.WriteLine("3) {0}", [String].Concat(o, o, o))
      
      Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "Concatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:")
      Console.WriteLine("4) {0}", [String].Concat(o, o, o, o, o))
      
      Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "Concatenate a 3 element object array:")
      Console.WriteLine("5) {0}", [String].Concat(objs))
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'stringConcat5

'This example produces the following output:
'Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:
'1) -123
'2) -123-123
'3) -123-123-123

'Concatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:
