Method

Returns the character whose Unicode code point is passed.

Syntax

result=Chr(value)

Part Type Description
result String The character whose Unicode code point was passed.
value Integer The numeric value ("code point") of the character you want, which must be a valid Unicode character.

Notes

The Chr function returns a string in ASCII encoding for values less than 128 and a UTF-8 encoded string for all other values. If you need to control the exact byte value, you should instead call ChrB.

Examples

These examples use the Chr function to return the characters whose ASCII values are specified.

Dim tab, CR As String
tab = Chr(9) // returns a tab
CR = Chr(13) // returns carriage return
CR = Encodings.ASCII.Chr(13) // also returns carriage return
