C#'s switch() statement is case-sensitive.  Is there a way to toggle it so it becomes case-insensitive?

Hi,

Convert the string to "switch" on to lowercase (or uppercase if you prefer):
e.g.
switch (yourString.ToLower())
{
    case "somelowercasestring":
        // Do something
        break;

    case "anotherlowercasestring":
        // Do something else
        break;
}

Also just to add, it's not that C#'s switch statement is case-sensitive - more that C# as a whole is case-sensitive
