# Multiply text in a textbox.

 P: 3 I was wondering if anyone knew how to multiply text in a textbox according to a specified amount in a textbox, if that doesn't make sense then... I type in Textbox1: aaa Then I type in The amount textbox: 10 Then a third textbox would = aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa Hope it makes sense. Thanks. (I tried to google it but I could only find things to multiply numbers) Jan 1 '08 #1

 100+ P: 274 It's pretty easy to do that: Suppose first text is in text1.Text and second in text2.Text then - store text2.Text in an Integer variable : suppose n - define a string (that will hold string after multiplying text1.Text) : suppose NewStr. Intially store NewStr = "" - use a loop (maybe for loop) e.g. Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers For i = 0 To n-1   NewStr = NewStr & text1.text Next i Finally you will have multiplied value stored in NewStr. I hope it will help you understand a little bit. P.S: theScripts Guys mention if I am wrong somewhere Kind regards Jan 1 '08 #2

 Expert 5K+ P: 8,434 Nice one, creative1. The only thing I think everyone is doing wrong here (and what caused the problems in trying to search for a solution) is using the term "multiply" when what you actually want is to "repeat" or make "copies" of a chunk of text. Searching on "multiply" is naturally going to return mostly mathematical type responses. Jan 1 '08 #5
