String.Concat Method (Object)

Creates the string representation of a specified object.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Function Concat ( _
	arg0 As Object _
) As String

Parameters

arg0
Type: System.Object

The object to represent, or Nothing.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of the value of arg0, or String.Empty if arg0 is Nothing.

The Concat(Object) method represents arg0 as a string by calling its parameterless ToString method.

The following example demonstrates the Concat method.

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))
      Console.WriteLine("5) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o, o, o))

      Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "Concatenate a 3-element object array:")
      Console.WriteLine("6) {0}", [String].Concat(objs))
   End Sub 
End Class 
'The example displays 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: 
'    4) -123-123-123-123 
'    5) -123-123-123-123-123 
'          
'    Concatenate a 3-element object array: 
'    6) -123-456-789
