[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Appends a copy of the specified string to this instance.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public Function Append ( _
	value As String _
) As StringBuilder


Type: System..::..String
The string to append.

Return Value

Type: System.Text..::..StringBuilder
A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

The Append(String) method modifies the existing instance of this class; it does not return a new class instance. Because of this, you can call a method or property on the existing reference and you do not have to assign the return value to a StringBuilder object.

If value is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), no changes are made.

The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.
