StringBuilder.Append Method (Char[])

July 28, 2014

Appends the string representation of the Unicode characters in a specified array to the end of this instance.

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

public StringBuilder Append(
	char[] value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char []
The array of characters to append.

Return Value

Type: System.Text.StringBuilder
A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed its maximum capacity.

This method appends all the characters in the specified array to the current instance in the same order as they appear in value. If value is null, no changes are made.

The Append method modifies the existing instance of this class; it does not return a new class instance. Because of this, you can call a method or property on the existing reference and you do not have to assign the return value to a StringBuilder object, as the following example illustrates.


char[] chars = { 'a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u' };
System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
sb.Append("The characters in the array: ").Append(chars);
outputBlock.Text += sb + Environment.NewLine;
// The example displays the following output:
//      The characters in the array: aeiou


The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.
