Part

Description

num

Value to be converted to string.

Details

Can be invoked implicitly, through the string_var= short_var expression (see example below). Compiler is smart enough to pre-calculate constant-only expressions involving implicit use of stri function.

Examples

 

dim sh as short

dim s as string

 

sh= -3400

s = stri(sh) 'explicit invocation.

s = sh 'implicit invocation

s = stri(-100) 'will be calculated at compilation -- no actual stri function invokation will be here
