Inserting a Double Quote in to a String in .NET

Even though this is not new I do forget this always, so thought of putting an entry on how we can put a double quote inside of a string.

Dim str As String = "Example String " & """" & "This is the String with double quotes." & """"

In VB.Net you can indicate that there is a double quote in a string by using 4 double quotes ("""").

string str = "Example String " + "\"" + "This is the String with double quotes." + "\"";

As you will notice in C# the double quote can be represented as double quote, back slash and again using two double quotes ("\"").

The above string will be displayed as follows.

I need help with a VB program I am working on this is what I have and it doesn't work. I need to combine the text box text, and the comment I wrote in.

Private Sub txtcomment_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtcomment.TextChanged
comment = "" & txtcomment.Text + "You have: " + time + " seconds until your computer shuts down. :)" & ""
End Sub

Help thanks!

Use multiple double quotes to make them appear in your output.
Try to get an idea using the below code.
Let me know if you still have problems.

Dim time As String = "60"
' If you need to use a quoteation in a variable use 4 quotes as in the begining of the following code.
Dim comment As String = """" & txtcomment.Text + "You have: " + time + " seconds until your computer shuts down. :)"""
MsgBox("""" & txtcomment.Text + "You have: " + time + " seconds until your computer shuts down. :)""")
MsgBox("""Text with double quotes.""")
