CompareInfo.IsSuffix Method (String, String)

 

Determines whether the specified source string ends with the specified suffix.

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

public virtual bool IsSuffix(
	string source,
	string suffix
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.String

The string to search in.

suffix
Type: System.String

The string to compare with the end of source.

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.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

-or-

suffix is null.

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

System_CAPS_noteNote

When possible, you should call string comparison methods that have a parameter of type CompareOptions to specify the kind of comparison expected. As a general rule, use linguistic options (using the current culture) for comparing strings displayed in the user interface and specify CompareOptions.Ordinal or CompareOptions.OrdinalIgnoreCase for security comparisons.

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

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;

      // Determines whether myXfix is a prefix of "calle" and "llegar".
      Console.WriteLine( "IsPrefix( {0}, {1} ) : {2}", myStr1, myXfix, myComp.IsPrefix( myStr1, myXfix ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "IsPrefix( {0}, {1} ) : {2}", myStr2, myXfix, myComp.IsPrefix( myStr2, myXfix ) );

      // Determines whether myXfix is a suffix of "calle" and "llegar".
      Console.WriteLine( "IsSuffix( {0}, {1} ) : {2}", myStr1, myXfix, myComp.IsSuffix( myStr1, myXfix ) );
      Console.WriteLine( "IsSuffix( {0}, {1} ) : {2}", myStr2, myXfix, myComp.IsSuffix( myStr2, myXfix ) );

   }

}
