Tutorial :Convert string to array in without using Split function


Is there any way to convert a string ("abcdef") to an array of string containing its character (["a","b","c","d","e","f"]) without using the String.Split function?


So you want an array of string, one char each:

string s = "abcdef";  string[] a = s.Select(c => c.ToString()).ToArray();  

This works because string implements IEnumerable<char>. So Select(c => c.ToString()) projects each char in the string to a string representing that char and ToArray enumerates the projection and converts the result to an array of string.

If you're using an older version of C#:

string s = "abcdef";  string[] a = new string[s.Length];  for(int i = 0; i < s.Length; i++) {      a[i] = s[i].ToString();  }  





You could use linq and do:

string value = "abcdef";  string[] letters = value.Select(c => c.ToString()).ToArray();  

This would get you an array of strings instead of an array of chars.


Why don't you just

string value="abcd";    value.ToCharArray();    textbox1.Text=Convert.toString(value[0]);  

to show the first letter of the string; that would be 'a' in this case.


Bit more bulk than those above but i don't see any simple one liner for this.

List<string> results = new List<string>;     foreach(Char c in "abcdef".ToCharArray())  {     results.add(c.ToString());  }      results.ToArray();  <-- done  

What's wrong with string.split???
