    Re: isString function

    VB Code:
    1. If TypeOf x Is String Then
    You can use this for any type, including Date, Array, etc.

    Re: [RESOLVED] isString function

    If you want to check the type of the variable its good, but if you want to check the contained of the variable its not a good solution

    E.g : If you create a string var, and that you put a numbers, the type of the variable stayed "string". o)
    If TypeOf x Is String Then => Bin

    Enjoy.

    (if I Could give to you a solution, i make this, but i can't)

    If you have a String which may be an Integer use Integer.TryParse. Double, Decimal, DateTime etc also have TryParse.
