String.Join Method (String, String[])

Concatenates a specified separator String between each element of a specified String array, yielding a single concatenated string.

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

public static string Join (
	string separator,
	string[] value
)
public static String Join (
	String separator, 
	String[] value
)
public static function Join (
	separator : String, 
	value : String[]
) : String

Parameters

separator

A String.

value

An array of String.

Return Value

A String consisting of the elements of value interspersed with the separator string.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

For example if separator is ", " and the elements of value are "apple", "orange", "grape", and "pear", Join(separator, value) returns "apple, orange, grape, pear".

If separator is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the empty string (Empty) is used instead.

The following code example demonstrates the Join method.

using System;

public class JoinTest {
    public static void Main() {

        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(0, 5, ", "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(1, 6, "  "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(9, 9, ": "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(4, 7, "< "));
    }

    private static string MakeLine(int initVal, int multVal, string sep) {

        string [] sArr = new string [10];

        for (int i = initVal; i < initVal + 10; i++)
            sArr[i - initVal] = String.Format("{0,-3}", i * multVal);

        return String.Join(sep, sArr);
    }
}

import System.*;

public class JoinTest
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(0, 5, ", "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(1, 6, "  "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(9, 9, ": "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(4, 7, "< "));
    } //main

    private static String MakeLine(int initVal, int multVal, String sep)
    {
        String sArr[] = new String[10];

        for (int i = initVal; i < initVal + 10; i++) {
            sArr.set_Item((i - initVal), String.Format("{0,-3}", 
                (Int32)(i * multVal)));
        }
        return String.Join(sep, sArr);
    } //MakeLine
} //JoinTest

import System;

public class JoinTest {
    public static function Main() : void {
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(0, 5, ", "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(1, 6, "  "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(9, 9, ": "));
        Console.WriteLine(MakeLine(4, 7, "< "));
    }

    private static function MakeLine(initVal : int, multVal : int, sep : String) : String  {

        var sArr : String [] = new String [10];

        for (var i : int = initVal; i < initVal + 10; i++)
            sArr[i - initVal] = String.Format("{0,-3}", i * multVal);

        return String.Join(sep, sArr);
    }
}
JoinTest.Main();
