Parse and split a variable into 3 strings

I have a string like this format....    2:30 PM and I want to parse into 3 different variables. So to the left of the colon : is one variable, then the next 2 digits is another variable and the last 2 is the final variable. What is the best way to parse this?

Hi Chicabow,

One way to do this is like this:

            string str = "2:30 PM";
            string[] split = str.Split(": ".ToCharArray());
            for(int i = 0; i < split.Length; i++)
               Console.WriteLine(i + " --> " + split[i]);

in this case,
  split[0] = 2
  split[1] = 30
  split[2] = PM

You could assign these to your own vars however you want.

Cheers

Wint
