Method

Returns the number of bytes in the specified String.

Syntax

result=stringVariable.Bytes

Part Type Description
result Integer The number of bytes in string.
stringVariable String Any variable of type String.

Notes

Bytes treats string as a series of bytes, rather than a series of characters. It should be used when string represents binary data. If you need to know the number of characters in string rather than the number of bytes, use the Length function.

Examples

This example uses the Bytes function to return the number of bytes in a string.

Var s As String
s = "Hello World"
n = s.Bytes // returns 11
