Description

Since often times in our applications we'll want to work with string data, this lesson will approach a number of different string manipulations, whether changing the manner in which it is displayed to the end user through String.Format() and the formatting syntax like {0:C} or through using escape sequences to include characters otherwise reserved by Visual Basic for other purposes. We'll look at built-in String methods to manipulate the content inside of a literal string, and will look at the StringBuilder class for concatenating many strings together in a memory and resource friendly manner.
