String Constructor (Char[])

Initializes a new instance of the String class to the value indicated by an array of Unicode characters.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public String(
	char[] value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char[]

An array of Unicode characters.

If value is null or contains no element, an Empty instance is initialized.

The following simple example demonstrates how you can create an instance of the String class with this constructor.

// Unicode Mathematical operators 
char [] charArr1 = {'\u2200','\u2202','\u200F','\u2205'};
String szMathSymbols = new String(charArr1);

// Unicode Letterlike Symbols 
char [] charArr2 = {'\u2111','\u2118','\u2122','\u2126'};
String szLetterLike = new String (charArr2);

// Compare Strings - the result is false
Console.WriteLine("The Strings are equal? " +
    (String.Compare(szMathSymbols, szLetterLike)==0?"true":"false") );
