Creating a String of Repeated Characters

The easiest way to create a string of repeated characters:

String.String(Char, Int32) Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the String class to the value indicated by a specified Unicode character repeated a specified number of times.

So, to create a repeating string of “x”s 12 characters long in VB.Net:

Dim myString = New String(“x”c, 12)
