hello,
I have a List of 2D arrays.
for example as u can see in the code matrix contains a 2D array. And i want to save them in the file. The problem is that saving them is going by row not by Column!!!
How can i save them by column. these is something that i should change. But i can't figure it out.

Thank you.
StreamWriter data = new StreamWriter("caracteristiques.car");
        
        for (int i = 0; i < matrix.Count; i++)
        {
            for (int x = 0; x < matrix[i].GetLength(1); x++)
            {
                if (x > 0) data.WriteLine();
                for (int y = 0; y < matrix[i].GetLength(0); y++)
                {
                    string value = matrix[i][y, x];
                    if (y > 0) data.Write("    ");
                    data.Write(value);
                }
                
                
            }
        }
        data.Close();

Again, what you mean "by column"? Your arrays have different number of elements in different directions. Any examples?

OK, I put some example together - it may help you to clarify what is required.

The output:

A_0_0 A_1_0 A_2_0
A_0_1 A_1_1 A_2_1
A_0_2 A_1_2 A_2_2
---------------------------
B_0_0 B_1_0 B_2_0
B_0_1 B_1_1 B_2_1
B_0_2 B_1_2 B_2_2
B_0_3 B_1_3 B_2_3
---------------------------
C_0_0 C_1_0 C_2_0
C_0_1 C_1_1 C_2_1
C_0_2 C_1_2 C_2_2
C_0_3 C_1_3 C_2_3
C_0_4 C_1_4 C_2_4
---------------------------

You may still continue with deleting the question if you want...
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // example
            string[,] ar1 = new string[3, 3];

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
