How do I use the String.split method when the delimiter is a carrage return?  

Or, how do I use String.split with a string delimeter instead of a character delimiter?  So, in the case the delimiter would be  "\r"

hey satjheeshm, str2 = str1.Split('\n');  does not work.  The delimiter is looking for a character.  A character is only one entry.  '\n' is a string.

This does work. '\n' is a char not a string.

 

string str1="ss\nzz\n"; 
string[] str2 = str1.Split('\n');

Continued....
The str2 string array has three elements after the split. The last element is and empty string.
