StringComparer.Ordinal Property

Updated: May 2010

Gets a StringComparer object that performs a case-sensitive ordinal string comparison.

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

public static function get Ordinal () : StringComparer

Property Value

Type: System.StringComparer
A StringComparer object.

The StringComparer returned by the Ordinal property performs a simple byte comparison that is independent of language. This is most appropriate when comparing strings that are generated programmatically or when comparing case-sensitive resources such as passwords.

The Ordinal property actually returns an instance of an anonymous class derived from the StringComparer class.

The following code example demonstrates the properties and the Create method of the StringComparer class. The example illustrates how different StringComparer objects sort three versions of the Latin letter I.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
