Description

Function Concat combines, or concatenates, all the specified parameters in order and returns the resultant string.
FUNCTION Concat(
txt  :DYNARRAY[] OF CHAR) : DYNARRAY[] OF CHAR;
def vs.Concat(txt):
    return DYNARRAY[] of CHAR

Parameters

txt DYNARRAY[] of CHAR

Remarks

(Orso, 2015.05.23):

You can use VS:Concat to convert numbers to strings, but it uses exclusively a dot "." as symbol for the decimal marker, it outputs the number as seen from inside VS. See the table below for a list of routines formatting according to your system's settings.

Decimal marker symbol usage
Metric: ',' American '.'
100,123
100.123
Formatting routines: Non formatting routines:
VS:Num2Str, VS:Num2StrF, VS:Angle2Str, VS:Area2Str, VS:Volume2Str
Num2Str(3, 100.123) { --> 100,123 on metric systems }
Num2Str(3, 100.123) { --> 100.123 on American systems }
VS:Concat
Concat(100.123) { --> 100.123 on any system }

Example

VectorScript

AlrtDialog(Concat('A', 'sample', 'string'));

Python

vs.Message(vs.Concat('A', 'sample', 'string'))
