The following simple code 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('\u0319', 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);

// Examine the result
outputBlock.Text += szGreekLetters + "\n";

// The first index of Alpha
int ialpha = szGreekLetters.IndexOf('\u0319');
// The last index of Omega
int iomega = szGreekLetters.LastIndexOf('\u03A9');

outputBlock.Text += "The Greek letter Alpha first appears at index " + ialpha +
    " and Omega last appears at index " + iomega + " in this String." + "\n";
