Convert a numeric variable or a constant to a string with a length of 1 character. The character represents the ASCII value of the numeric value.





s = CHR(var)





Numeric variable or numeric constant.


A string variable.


When you want to print a character to the screen or the LCD display,

you must convert it with the CHR() function.


When you use PRINT numvar, the value will be printed.

When you use PRINT Chr(numvar), the ASCII character itself will be printed.

The Chr() function is handy in combination with the LCD custom characters where you can redefine characters 0-7 of the ASCII table.

Since strings are terminated with a null byte which is the same as Chr(0) , you can not embed a Chr(0) into a string.

When using Chr(0) with the LCD to display a customer character, use : LCD "tekst" ; chr(0) ; "more tekst"
