Property/method value type:String primitive
JavaScript syntax:-String.fromCharCode(aChar0, aChar1, aChar2, ...)
Argument list:aCharNa character code value

Constructs a new string from a sequence of Unicode character code point values each passed as a separate argument.

This is a static method. So called because it belongs to the String() constructor and not any of the string objects. This means it is analogous to a class method in other object oriented environments.

Example code:

   <HTML>
   <HEAD>
   </HEAD>
   <BODY>
   <SCRIPT>
   document.write(String.fromCharCode(72, 69, 76, 76, 79));
   </SCRIPT>
   </BODY>
   </HTML>
