String.Clone Method

Returns a reference to this instance of String.

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

'Declaration
Public Function Clone As Object

Return Value

Type: System.Object
This instance of String.

Implements

ICloneable.Clone

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.
