    Equivalent C# methods from Java

    I tried to look for these methods at the MSDN library, not sure which to select;

    What is the equivalent in C# to:

    Java charAt() method in a String- Chars property or Trim()

    and

    Java compareTo method in a String- is it Compare or CompareOrdinal in C#

    Like input on this

    ..Do this on break from reading AP exams

    I could probably be more precise if you had listed what the Java methods do...

    The indexer property will give you a char a a specified position of a string.

    You can compare strings using operator ==.

    -nv

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Talking

    Ok: from the Java API

    charAt(int index)
    Returns the character at the specified index.

    compareTo(String anotherString)
    Compares two strings lexicographically.

    compareToIgnoreCase(String str)
    Compares two strings lexicographically, ignoring case differences.

    This page might help.

    You can access chars by using the indexer property:

    string x = "Test";

    x[2] = 'f';

    You can compare two strings by using either operator == or the Compare or CompareTo ( different interface implementantations, same result ) methods. If you need case insensitive comparison, try one of the many overloads of Compare.

    I went to the link you posted, earlier. I just did not find the examples clear enough. Thanks for the help.
