Char.ToUpper Method (Char)

 

Converts the value of a Unicode character to its uppercase equivalent.

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

public static char ToUpper(
	char c
)

Parameters

c
Type: System.Char

The Unicode character to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Char

The uppercase equivalent of c, or the unchanged value of c if c is already uppercase, has no uppercase equivalent, or is not alphabetic.

Casing rules are obtained from the current culture.

Use String.ToUpper to convert a string to uppercase.

Notes to Callers:

As explained in Best Practices for Using Strings in the .NET Framework, we recommend that you avoid calling character-casing and string-casing methods that substitute default values. Instead, you should call methods that require parameters to be explicitly specified. To convert a character to uppercase by using the casing conventions of the current culture, call the ToUpper(Char, CultureInfo) method overload with a value of CultureInfo.CurrentCulture for its culture parameter.

The following example converts each character in an array to its uppercase equivalent.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      char[] chars = { 'e', 'E', '6', ',', 'ж', 'ä' };
      foreach (var ch in chars)
          Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1} {2}", ch, Char.ToUpper(ch),
                            ch == Char.ToUpper(ch) ? "(Same Character)" : "" );
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       e --> E
//       E --> E (Same Character)
//       6 --> 6 (Same Character)
//       , --> , (Same Character)
//       ? --> ?
//       ä --> Ä
