String.Concat Method (Object, Object)

Concatenates the string representations of two specified objects.

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

public static string Concat(
	Object arg0,
	Object arg1
)

Parameters

arg0
Type: System.Object

The first object to concatenate.

arg1
Type: System.Object

The second object to concatenate.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The concatenated string representations of the values of arg0 and arg1.

The method concatenates arg0 and arg1by calling the parameterless ToString method of arg0 and arg1; it does not add any delimiters.

String.Empty is used in place of any null argument.

If either of the arguments is an array reference, the method concatenates a string representing that array, instead of its members (for example, "System.String[]").

The following example demonstrates the Concat method.

using System;

class stringConcat5 {
    public static void Main() {
    int i = -123;
    Object o = i;
    Object[] objs = new Object[] {-123, -456, -789};

    Console.WriteLine("Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:");
    Console.WriteLine("1) {0}", String.Concat(o));
    Console.WriteLine("2) {0}", String.Concat(o, o));
    Console.WriteLine("3) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o));

    Console.WriteLine("\nConcatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:");
    Console.WriteLine("4) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o, o));
    Console.WriteLine("5) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o, o, o));

    Console.WriteLine("\nConcatenate a 3-element object array:");
    Console.WriteLine("6) {0}", String.Concat(objs));
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects: 
//    1) -123 
//    2) -123-123 
//    3) -123-123-123 
//     
//    Concatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list: 
//    4) -123-123-123-123 
//    5) -123-123-123-123-123 
//     
//    Concatenate a 3-element object array: 
//    6) -123-456-789
