Operator & (String concatenation with conversion)


Concatenates two strings, converting non-strings to strings as needed

Syntax:
declare operator & ( byref lhs as T, byref rhs as U ) as V

Usage:
result = lhs & rhs

Parameters:
lhs
The left-hand side expression to concatenate.
T
Any standard data type or user-defined type that can be converted to a standard data type.
rhs
The right-hand side expression to concatenate.
U
Any standard data type or user-defined type that can be converted to a standard data type.
V
The resultant string type (varies with operands).

Description:
This operator concatenates two expressions. If either of the expressions is not a string type, it is converted to String with Str.

If either of the expressions is a Wstring, a Wstring is returned, otherwise a String is returned.

Note: This operator exists in C/C++ with a different meaning - there it performs a bitwise And.

Examples:
Dim As String A,C
Dim As Single B
A="The result is: "
B=124.3
C=A & B
Print C
Sleep

Output:
The result is: 124.3
