I don't believe so.

Just double all quotes.

No, In VB.NET, you can find the special character in module
Microsoft.Visua lBasic.ControlC hars. These constants are equivalent to escape
characters of C#.

There are no escape characters. Notice that a single quote must be
"encoded" as two single quotes inside a string literal. For special
characters, take a look at 'ControlChars':

\\\
Dim s As String = "Hello" & ControlChars.Ne wLine & "World"
///

There is no runtime performance loss because the compiler will determine
that this is a single constant and store it as a single constant in the
executable file.

It can be true however what the hell of a loss of performance this could
be, even when it is in a loop which goes a billion times it would be less
than a millisecond probably.

Full ACK. I only wanted to make sure that the OP doesn't think VB.NET
isn't as clever as C# ;-).

Hi, 'C' says \ is the escape character to be used when characters are to be interpreted in an uncommon sense, e.g. \t usage in printf(), but for printing % through printf(), i have read that %% should be used. Wouldn't it have been better (from design perspective) if the same escape character had been used in this case too. Forgive me for posting without verfying things with any standard compiler, i don't have the means for now.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
