string manipulation

what is wrong with this ? (assuming s is > 1 char long)

Dim s As String

s = s.ToUpper(s.Substring(1, 1)) & s.ToLower(s.Substring(2))

Hi John,

Here's a .NET gotcha. A String, like an array, like practically everything
now, starts counting from 0.

s.Substring (1, 1) is the 2nd character
s.Substring (2) is the 3rd character onwards.

Also the Mid Left and Right functions from VB6 are very forgiving
(sensibly and usefully so) but the String class functions are not. Go out of
range with these and it's Exception time.

You can still use Mid if you wish.

Fergus

John,
In addition to Fergus's comments.

String.ToUpper does not accept a string as a parameter. It operators on the
current instance of the string. So if you want the upper case the first
character of "s" you would use:

s = s.SubString(0, 1).ToUpper()

As Fergus pointed out the index is zero based, so to get the first character
of "s" you pass 0, then you upper case the result of the sub string.

Of course you could have upper cased the entire string then took the sub
string of that.

s = s.ToUpper().SubString(0, 1)

Hope this helps
Jay

Or

str = StrConv(str, vbProperCase)
Is easier ;-D

Hi OHM
That string conversion, you had a long discussion with Herfried about that a
while ago, and I was laughing about it.
So I thought that I d'nt forget.
(You won the discussion )
I thought I d'nt know if you where in this newsgroup today, so I started
searching for it, because I thougth that is the answer.
Could not find it in MSDN and started to search for your messages, then I
saw you had answered it.

So now I have saved your solution in a seperate map.

:-)

Morning OHM,

ROFL. That's a good 'un. Borg's ain't got a patch on me. Hmm, perhaps
patch is the wrong word there.

One theory is that I'm actually asleep right now and this is my astral
body using telekenesis to type.

;-)

Fergus

ps. Did you see my response to your Troll comment?
