StrCat command


Quote marks are stripped from result in StrCat
How do you get StrCat to include " " marks?


Place a backslash  ( \ ) in front of the quote mark.  The backslash  serves as an escape character.    For example:

StrCat ?Result "\"I need this in quotes\"" "$Username" 
MessageBox ?Result
