4.2.3 The string type

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The string type is a sealed class type that inherits directly from object. Instances of the string class represent Unicode character strings.

Values of the string type can be written as string literals (Section 2.4.4).

The keyword string is simply an alias for the predefined class System.String.
