Addressing variable within another variable

Posted 07 September 2009 - 08:07 PM

Hey guys I'm trying to do something like this

dim x as string
dim y1 as string
dim y2 as string
dim z as string

y1= x & z
y2 = z & x
if (x in y1) equals (x in y2) then
'some commands

What are the available commands for (x in y1) equals (x in y2)?
I tried 'in' but I don't know how to use it and google won't display accurate search results.
Would appreciate anybody's help, thanks!

Are you thinking:
If y1.Contains(x) And y2.Contains(x) Then
End If

Equals doesn't make any sense in your context... Once you do the line "y1 = x & z", VB makes a completely new string that is x concatenated with z. There is no concept of the original string objects in the new string object, it is take the data from each of the objects and generate a completely new object.

Open the VB Help, Index and look under String class, All Members and read the possibilities available to you - Google is better for samples once you have an idea of what you are trying to do.
