StringBuilder::Insert Method (Int32, String, Int32)

Inserts one or more copies of a specified string into this instance at the specified character position.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
StringBuilder^ Insert(
	int index, 
	String^ value, 
	int count
)

Parameters

index
Type: System::Int32
The position in this instance where insertion begins.
value
Type: System::String
The string to insert.
count
Type: System::Int32
The number of times to insert value.

Return Value

Type: System.Text::StringBuilder
A reference to this instance after insertion has completed.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is less than zero or greater than the current length of this instance.

-or-

count is less than zero.

OutOfMemoryException

The current length of this StringBuilder object plus the length of value times count exceeds MaxCapacity.

Existing characters are shifted to make room for the new text. The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.

This StringBuilder object is not changed if value is nullptr, value is not nullptr but its length is zero, or count is zero.

The following example demonstrates the Insert method.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;

      //

      sb = gcnew StringBuilder( initialValue );
      sb->Insert( 3, xyz, 2 );
      Show( 1, sb );

      Show( 13, sb );
      sb->Insert( 3, xDouble ); // 7.7
      Show( 14, sb );

      // The following Insert methods are not CLS-compliant.
      sb->Insert( 3, xUInt16 ); // 8
      Show( 15, sb );
      sb->Insert( 3, xUInt32 ); // 9
      Show( 16, sb );
      sb->Insert( 3, xUInt64 ); // 10
      Show( 17, sb );
      sb->Insert( 3, xSByte ); // -11
      Show( 18, sb );

      //
   }

   static void Show( int overloadNumber, StringBuilder^ sbs )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "{0,2:G} = {1}", overloadNumber, sbs );
      sb = gcnew StringBuilder( initialValue );
   }

};
