String Constructor (Char[])

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

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


Type: System.Char []
An array of Unicode characters.

If value is null 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
outputBlock.Text += "The Strings are equal? " +
    (String.Compare(szMathSymbols, szLetterLike) == 0 ? "true" : "false") + "\n";
