String has a split function.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.string.split.aspx

string[] splitString = username.Split(new char[] { '.' });

Open in new window


and if you want to get the last entry after the split

string surname = splitString[splitString.Length-1];

Open in new window


which is fine as you've already tested that the string contains at least one '.', so the split will contain at least 2 elements.

Please try the following:

string username = " Jack.Smith";

if (username.Contains("."))
{            
	string[] names = username.Split('.');
	
	Console.WriteLine(names[1].Trim());
}

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

Hi

Please try the following code.
string str = "Jack.Smith";
            if (str.Contains('.'))
            {
                // When we do split on the string, it will internally store as a string arry. to print all the values
               // i am doing the foreach loop
                foreach (var item in str.Split('.'))
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(item.ToString());
                }
            }

Open in new window
