string help in

I've got 3 sets of radio buttons on an page and need to parse out the string that is returned when a user makes a selection.

8700  $199.99  12
7105  $99.99   12
7290  $49.99   12

The value for each looks like: 8700199.9912

string modelpricemonth;
string variableModel; // = 8700
string variablePrice; // = 199.99
string variableMonth; // = 12

modelpricemonth = ModelType.SelectedItem.Value;
LabelSummary.Text = modelpricemonth; //8700199.9912

LabelModel.text = variableModel;
LabelPrice.text = "$" + variablePrice;
LabelMonths.text = variableMonth;

How do I get this result?

LabelModel.Text = 8700
LabelPrice.Text = $199.99
LabelMonths.Text = 12

Hi fwsteal;

Here is a sample code that will do what you want using Regular Expression.

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

      string data = "8700199.9912";
      string Model = "";
      string Price = "";
      string Month = "";
      Match m = Regex.Match(data,
      if( m.Success )
            Model = m.Groups["Model"].Value;
            Price = m.Groups["Price"].Value;
            Month = m.Groups["Month"].Value;
            MessageBox.Show("Model = " + Model + " Price = $" + Price +
                  " Month = " + Month);

You could also do...

            string modelpricemonth = "8700199.9912";
            int period = modelpricemonth.IndexOf(".");
            string variableModel = modelpricemonth.Substring(0,4);            
            string variablePrice = modelpricemonth.Substring(4, period - 4 + 3);
            string variableMonth = modelpricemonth.Substring(period + 3);
