Why String.Split(char[]) is possible but String.Split(string[]) is Not!

Hi everyone,

i have a string for e:g

String st= "Delete a record****** *************************************************** Delete Manually PatID=123456 PatName=navdeep *****Delete a record****** *************************************************** Delete Manually *****************PatID=123 PatName=navdeep6666"

I need to Split this String by "Delete a record" string. Now, str[] will contain the array elements. str = st.Split("Delete a record");

Please Help

    If I've understood correctly then you want something like:


string[] str = st.Split(new string[] { "Delete a record" }, StringSplitOptions.None);

Hi Sameer


In the Code :


The Split function accepts only Characters. If i want that it should accept string then what approach i should follow?please clarify

Secondly, If i want to  have Deliminators on the String , then how can i do it with the help of StartsWith and EndsWith methods?


Thanks In Advance

You can do this by follwing code:-

string s = "Delete a record****** *************************************************** Delete Manually PatID=123456 PatName=navdeep *****Delete a record****** *************************************************** Delete Manually *****************PatID=123 PatName=navdeep6666";

string[] s2 = s.Split(new string[] { "Delete a record" } , StringSplitOptions.None);

for (int i=0;i<s2.Length;i++)

Response.Write(s2[i].ToString() );

how to split a string by a string not a char?
I've used the split('?') function on strings to good effect to delimit them up based on a single char but I'm looking through the overloads and can't see one for how to split a string by a string pattern. My source string is called Session["basket"] and is in the format A/B and I want to change it also include C, however A/B/C and split by '/' won't be 100% reliable because C is actually gotten from user input so they could input forwardslashes and thus mess things up, so a possible solution may be to do something like A#@#B#@#C and then do a Session...

Splitting a String into Usable strings
How do I split up a string that has data that is separated by a comma?  I used the SPLIT method, but the method put the data into an array.  The array will not allow me to send the data into a string to be used.    What can I do??? What do you want to achieve by splitting the string? An array will let you access each segment individually. string numbers = "1,2,3,4"; string[] s = numbers.Split(",".ToCharArray()); string firstNumber = s[0]; In case you want to bring the splitted string back to a flat string you should take a look at the String.J...

String and string?
Hi guys, I was wondering the difference between small letter string type and a capital letter String type. Does anyone know about this? Highly appreciate for your answers! Thankz! The "proper" version is String, as it references the System.String class of the .NET Framework Class Library. The ability to use string is provided by C#, where it is an alias to String. Similarly, the "proper" version of an integer is Int32, as it references System.Int32.  The ability to use int is provided by C#, and the ability to use Integer is provided by VB.NET, and both int and Integer are aliases...
