Concatenates the elements of a specified String array.

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

public static string Concat(
	params string[] values
)
public:
static String^ Concat(
	... array<String^>^ values
)
static member Concat : 
        [<ParamArrayAttribute>] values:string[] -> string
Public Shared Function Concat (
	ParamArray values As String()
) As String

Parameters

values
Type:

An array of string instances.

Return Value

Type:

The concatenated elements of values.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

values is null.

OutOfMemoryException

Out of memory.

The method concatenates each object in values; it does not add any delimiters.

An Empty string is used in place of any null object in the array.

The following example demonstrates the use of the Concat method with a String array.

using System;

public class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Make an array of strings. Note that we have included spaces.
        string [] s = { "hello ", "and ", "welcome ", "to ",
                        "this ", "demo! " };

        // Put all the strings together.
        Console.WriteLine(string.Concat(s));

        // Sort the strings, and put them together.
        Array.Sort(s);
        Console.WriteLine(string.Concat(s));
    }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       hello and welcome to this demo!
//       and demo! hello this to welcome
Public Class Example
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Make an array of strings. Note that we have included spaces.
        Dim s As String() = { "hello ", "and ", "welcome ", "to ",
                              "this ", "demo! "}

        ' Put all the strings together.
        Console.WriteLine(String.Concat(s))

        ' Sort the strings, and put them together.
        Array.Sort(s)
        Console.WriteLine(String.Concat(s))
    End Sub
End Class
' The example displays the following output:
'       hello and welcome to this demo!
'       and demo! hello this to welcome
using namespace System;

int main()
{

   // Make an array of strings. Note that we have included spaces.
   array<String^>^s = { "hello ", "and ", "welcome ", "to ",
                        "this ", "demo! "};

   // Put all the strings together.
   Console::WriteLine( String::Concat(s) );

   // Sort the strings, and put them together.
   Array::Sort( s );
   Console::WriteLine( String::Concat(s));
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       hello and welcome to this demo!
//       and demo! hello this to welcome
