HI All,

Lets say I have the following random string - ox228rg,

Could anyone show me a C# example of inserting a space before the 3rd character on the right so that the string looks like so - ox22 8rg

Many thanks,

Rit

Try:
string s = "ox228rg";

            string s2 = s.Substring(0, s.Length - 3) + " " + s.Substring(s.Length - 3, 3);



            MessageBox.Show(s2);

gmailjini, you have made a common mistake. The output will be : "ox228rg"!

Just fix the line:

a = a.Insert(4, " ");

string s = "ox228rg";
s = s.Length <= 3 ? s : s.Insert(s.Length-3, " "); // handle short strings

sorry.
you can use the below one

string a = "ox228rg";
            char sp = Convert.ToChar(" ");
            string b=a.Insert(4, sp.ToString());

            Console.Write(b);

If go with  code, I'd still modify it to insert not in to the 4th index, but before the 3d from the end character:

Great respect to NZ kiwis! :) Very good idea to check for short strings!
            string a = "ox228rg";

            char sp = Convert.ToChar(" ");

            a = a.Insert(a.Length-3, " ");



            MessageBox.Show(a);
