StringClone Method

Returns a reference to this instance of String.

public object Clone()
virtual Object^ Clone() sealed
abstract Clone : unit -> Object
override Clone : unit -> Object
Public Function Clone As Object

Return Value


This instance of String.


The return value is not an independent copy of this instance; it is simply another view of the same data. Use the Copy or CopyTo method to create a separate String object with the same value as this instance.

Because the Clone method simply returns the existing string instance, there is little reason to call it directly.
