Right(String, Int32) Method
Returns a string containing a specified number of characters from the right side of a string.
public: static System::String ^ Right(System::String ^ str, int Length);
public static string Right (string str, int Length);
static member Right : string * int -> string
Public Function Right (str As String, Length As Integer) As String
String expression from which the rightmost characters are returned.
Integer. Numeric expression indicating how many characters to return. If 0, a zero-length string ("") is returned. If greater than or equal to the number of characters in
str, the entire string is returned.

This example demonstrates the use of the
Right function to return a substring of a given
String. In a class that has a
Right property, it may be necessary to fully qualify the
Dim testString As String = "Hello World!" ' Returns "World!". Dim subString As String = Right(testString, 6)
To determine the number of characters in
str, use the
Len function. If used in a Windows Form, or any other class that has a
Right property, you must fully qualify the function with
RightB function in earlier versions of Visual Basic returns a string in bytes, rather than characters. It is used primarily for converting strings in double-byte character set (DBCS) applications. All current Visual Basic strings are in Unicode, and
RightB is no longer supported.
