A string that contains the current quotation mark.

Example

JavaScript, JScript

function QuoteSymbolDemo()
{
  // Saves the previous quote mark
  var prevQuote = aqString.QuoteSymbol;
 
  // Sets a new quote symbol
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = "/";
  
  // Quotes a string using a new quote symbol
  var qStr = aqString.Quote("The string to be quoted.");
  Log.Message(qStr);
  
  // Restores the previous quote mark
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = prevQuote;
}

/*
The routine produces the following output:

/The string to be quoted./
*/

Python

def QuoteSymbolDemo():
  # Saves the previous quote mark
  prevQuote = aqString.QuoteSymbol
  # Sets a new quote symbol
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = "/"
  # Quotes a string using a new quote symbol
  qStr = aqString.Quote("The string to be quoted.")
  Log.Message(qStr)
  # Restores the previous quote mark
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = prevQuote

# The routine produces the following output:
# /The string to be quoted./

VBScript

Sub QuoteSymbolDemo

  ' Saves the previous quote mark
  prevQuote = aqString.QuoteSymbol
 
  ' Sets a new quote symbol
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = "/"
  
  ' Quotes a string using a new quote symbol
  qStr = aqString.Quote("The string to be quoted.")
  Log.Message(qStr)
  
  ' Restores the previous quote mark
  aqString.QuoteSymbol = prevQuote
  
End Sub

' The routine produces the following output:
' /The string to be quoted./

DelphiScript

function QuoteSymbolDemo;
var prevQuote, qStr;
begin
  // Saves the previous quote mark
  prevQuote := aqString.QuoteSymbol;
 
  // Sets a new quote symbol
  aqString.QuoteSymbol := '/';
  
  // Quotes a string using a new quote symbol
  qStr := aqString.Quote('The string to be quoted.');
  Log.Message(qStr);
  
  // Restores the previous quote mark
  aqString.QuoteSymbol := prevQuote;
end;

{
The routine produces the following output:

/The string to be quoted./
}

C++Script, C#Script

function QuoteSymbolDemo()
{
  // Saves the previous quote mark
  var prevQuote = aqString["QuoteSymbol"];
 
  // Sets a new quote symbol
  aqString["QuoteSymbol"] = "/";
  
  // Quotes a string using a new quote symbol
  var qStr = aqString["Quote"]("The string to be quoted.");
  Log["Message"](qStr);
  
  // Restores the previous quote mark
  aqString["QuoteSymbol"] = prevQuote;
}
