What does the '* 1' mean in this constant declaration?
Public Const gcsDelimiter As String * 1 = "|"
The * in your example defines the size of that the string should be initiated to. If you were to ask for the length of the string you would see it is one. If you example was:
Public Const gcsDelimiter As String * 10 = "|"
And you did:
you would see it is 10 characters long.
