String.String(Char[]) Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the String class to the value indicated by an array of Unicode characters.

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

public String (
	char[] value
public String (
	char[] value
public function String (
	value : char[]
Not applicable.



An array of Unicode characters.

If value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or contains no element, an Empty instance is initialized.

The following simple code example demonstrates how you can create an instance of the String class with this constructor.

// Unicode Mathematical operators
char [] charArr1 = {'\u2200','\u2202','\u200F','\u2205'};
String szMathSymbols = new String(charArr1);

// Unicode Letterlike Symbols
char [] charArr2 = {'\u2111','\u2118','\u2122','\u2126'};
String szLetterLike = new String (charArr2);

// Compare Strings - the result is false
Console.WriteLine("The Strings are equal? " +
    (String.Compare(szMathSymbols, szLetterLike)==0?"true":"false") );
