Chr$( ) function
Returns a one-character string corresponding to a specified character code.
num_expr is an integer value from 0 to 255 (or, if a double-byte character set is in use, from 0 to 65,535), inclusive.
The Chr$( ) function returns a string, one character long, based on the character code specified in the num_expr parameter. On most systems, num_expr should be a positive integer value between 0 and 255. On systems that support double-byte character sets (e.g., Windows Japanese), num_expr can have a value from 0 to 65,535.
Note: All MapInfo Professional environments have common character codes within the range of 32 (space) to 126 (tilde).
If the num_expr parameter is fractional, MapBasic rounds to the nearest integer.
Character 12 is the form-feed character. Thus, you can use the statement
Print Chr$(12)to clear the Message window. Character 10 is the line-feed character; see example below.
Character 34 is the double-quotation mark ("). If a string expression includes the function call
Chr$(34), MapBasic embeds a double-quote character in the string.
The ERR_FCN_ARG_RANGE error is generated if an argument is outside of the valid range.
