I know there are a few ways to do this, but what would be the simplest way to grab all characters after the first "_"?

Example:
string SomeString1 = "a_1234_dc_54";
string SomeString2 = "be_456_xy";

Results:
1234_dc_54
456_xy

Something like:


            string s = "a_1234_dc_54";
            int index = s.IndexOf("_");
            string s2 = s.Substring(index + 1);
            char[] chars= s2.ToCharArray();
            MessageBox.Show(s2);
