CompareInfo.IsSuffix Method (String, String, CompareOptions)

Determines whether the specified source string ends with the specified suffix using the specified CompareOptions value.

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

public virtual bool IsSuffix(
	string source,
	string suffix,
	CompareOptions options
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.String
The string to search in.
suffix
Type: System.String
The string to compare with the end of source.
options
Type: System.Globalization.CompareOptions
The CompareOptions value that defines how source and suffix should be compared. options is either the value Ordinal used by itself, or the bitwise combination of one or more of the following values: IgnoreCase, IgnoreSymbols, IgnoreNonSpace, IgnoreWidth, and IgnoreKanaType.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the length of suffix is less than or equal to the length of source and source ends with suffix; otherwise, false.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

-or-

suffix is null.

ArgumentException

options contains an invalid CompareOptions value.

Every string starts and ends with an empty substring (""); therefore, if suffix is an empty string, this method returns true.

The CompareOptions.StringSort value is not valid for this method.

NoteNote

When possible, the application should use string comparison methods that accept a CompareOptions value to specify the kind of comparison expected. As a general rule, user-facing comparisons are best served by the use of linguistic options (using the current culture), while security comparisons should specify Ordinal or OrdinalIgnoreCase.

The following code example determines whether a string is the prefix or suffix of another string using CompareOptions.


using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesCompareInfo  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Defines the strings to compare.
      String myStr1 = "calle";
      String myStr2 = "llegar";
      String myXfix = "LLE";

      // Uses the CompareInfo property of the InvariantCulture.
      CompareInfo myComp = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.CompareInfo;

      Console.WriteLine( "IsSuffix \"{0}\", \"{1}\"", myStr1, myXfix );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With no CompareOptions            : {0}", myComp.IsSuffix( myStr1, myXfix ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With None                         : {0}", myComp.IsSuffix( myStr1, myXfix, CompareOptions.None ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With Ordinal                      : {0}", myComp.IsSuffix( myStr1, myXfix, CompareOptions.Ordinal ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With IgnoreCase                   : {0}", myComp.IsSuffix( myStr1, myXfix, CompareOptions.IgnoreCase ) );

      Console.WriteLine( "IsPrefix \"{0}\", \"{1}\"", myStr2, myXfix );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With no CompareOptions            : {0}", myComp.IsPrefix( myStr2, myXfix ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With None                         : {0}", myComp.IsPrefix( myStr2, myXfix, CompareOptions.None ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With Ordinal                      : {0}", myComp.IsPrefix( myStr2, myXfix, CompareOptions.Ordinal ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "   With IgnoreCase                   : {0}", myComp.IsPrefix( myStr2, myXfix, CompareOptions.IgnoreCase ) );

   }

}
