I have to shorten the length of a string variable to one character. The problem arises as I don't know the length of the variable.
The code I have written has been designed to take a first name and surname and display them in a label in the format of SURNAME.INITIAL.
How would I be able to shorten the length of the variable FirstName to one letter?
Say you have the string Mary. To get the M you can do this:
Dim str As String str = "Mary" Dim first_char As Char first_char = str .Substring(0, 1)
first_char will have the M
