Any one help me to split a particular sting from the right or left side in the string. For example I want to split "mail" from the string "mail       A     98.122.233.33"

Thanks in advance.

       Dim s As String = "mail       A     98.122.233.33"
        Dim StringToSplit = "mail"
        s = s.Substring(s.IndexOf(StringToSplit), StringToSplit.length)
        MessageBox.Show(s)                                           ' s = "mail" now

or  something like

Dim s As String = "mail       A     98.122.233.33"
Dim g As String = s.Substring(0, 4)

or the "old" way

        g = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Right(s, 13)   '= 98.122.233.33
        g = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Left(s, 4)       '= mail

or the "new" way :)

        Dim str As String = "mail       A     98.122.233.33"
        Dim strArray() As String = str.Split()

        MsgBox(strArray(0))

Hi RonaldBiemans,

While I try your code, I got the folloing error message.

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException' occurred in mscorlib.dll

Additional information: Index and length must refer to a location within the string."

could you post what you did, because the error means that either the index or the lenght don't match your string

like

Dim s As String = "hello"
Dim g As String = s.Substring(10, 4)

the s has a lenght of 5 so 10 would cause that error
