If count is zero, an Empty instance is initialized.

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

// Create a Unicode String with 5 Greek Alpha characters
String szGreekAlpha = new String('\u0391',5);
// Create a Unicode String with a Greek Omega character
String szGreekOmega = new String(new char [] {'\u03A9','\u03A9','\u03A9'},2,1);

String szGreekLetters = String.Concat(szGreekOmega, szGreekAlpha, szGreekOmega.Clone());

// Examine the result
Console.WriteLine(szGreekLetters);

// The first index of Alpha 
int ialpha = szGreekLetters.IndexOf('\u0391');
// The last index of Omega 
int iomega = szGreekLetters.LastIndexOf('\u03A9');

Console.WriteLine("The Greek letter Alpha first appears at index " + ialpha +
    " and Omega last appears at index " + iomega + " in this String.");
