Public Sub New ( _
	value As Char() _
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char()
An array of Unicode characters.

If value is Nothing or contains no element, an Empty instance is initialized.

The following simple code example demonstrates how you can create an instance of the String class with this constructor.


' Unicode Mathematical operators
Dim charArr1() As Char = {ChrW(&H2200), ChrW(&H2202), _
                          ChrW(&H200F), ChrW(&H2205)}
Dim szMathSymbols As New String(charArr1)

' Unicode Letterlike Symbols
Dim charArr2() As Char = {ChrW(&H2111), ChrW(&H2118), _
                          ChrW(&H2122), ChrW(&H2126)}
Dim szLetterLike As New String(charArr2)

' Compare Strings - the result is false
outputBlock.Text &= "The strings are equal? " & _
        CStr(szMathSymbols.Equals(szLetterLike)) & vbCrLf
