Hi Every One,
I have a String in my application as var str:String="Abc";
What i want is that i want to Store that String as "Abc"
means it have to take double quotes also in my String str
So now i should have String parameters as "Abc" including
double quotes how to do that?
You have two options for including quotation marks in a
string in ECMAScript. (Parent language to both ActionScript and
First, unlike some other languages, ECMAScript allows use of
either single or double quotes, with no difference in
functionality. So, in a simple example like yours, where you need
to use only one type in your string, you use the other in your
program: var str:String = '"ABC"'; Due to the font they've chosen
for this forum page and lack of a code quoting feature, a different
example will be clearer: var str:String = 'Click the "Start" button
to begin the process.';
Second, you can escape quotation marks with a backslash to
cause them to be taken as part of the string, not terminating it:
var str:String = "\"ABC\""; Although the above examples may be
harder to read here in the forum, programmer's text editors almost
always use fixed-width fonts, so double and single quotes are easy
to tell apart, even right next to each other as in the ABC example.
So, the general rule is to minimize the number of backslashes you
need by proper choice of the outer quote type.
