This function converts an integer array of Unicode character codes to a string, where each value in the array is a double-byte word.

ValueWToChar String Synchronous Supported Supported Supported


The name of the integer array containing the double-byte values to be converted. If no array index is specified, then the default is 0.
Note: The tag name must be enclosed in quotes, as shown in the syntax diagram, or else the project will try to get the value of the named tag.
The number of values to be converted (minimum of 1), starting with the specifed array index.

Returned value

Returns a string comprising the converted values.


Each value in the array must be a double-byte word, and each word will be split into two bytes for conversion. As such, this function only supports Unicode character codes 0 through 255. For character codes greater than 255, or when double-byte words are not needed, use the ValueToChar function.


If Array[0] = 29779, Array[1] = 25717, and Array[2] = 28521, then the returned value is "Studio":
ValueWToChar( "Array", 3 )
If Array[10] = 29779, Array[11] = 25717, and Array[12] = 28521, then the returned value is "Studio":
ValueWToChar( "Array[10]", 3 )
