Description

Returns a string with a specified number of repeating characters.

In Object Pascal code, StringOfChar returns a string that contains Count characters, with the character value given by Ch. For example,

S := StringOfChar('A', 10);

sets S to the string 'AAAAAAAAAA'.

Note that StringOfChar returns the same type as ch: either an AnsiString or UnicodeString, so it works properly for both types.
