        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            String [,] array2D;
            int numberOfLines = 0, numberOfColumns = 0;
            string line;
            String filename = "C:\\Decomposition\\Analyse\\image143\\feature143.txt";
            System.IO.StreamReader sr = new System.IO.StreamReader(filename);
            while((line = sr.ReadLine()) != null)
            {

                numberOfColumns = line.Split(new char[] { '\t' }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries).Length;
                 numberOfLines++;
            }
            sr.Close();

                Console.WriteLine(tempArray.Length);
                for (int i = 0; i < tempArray.Length; ++i)
                {
                   //array2D[numberOfLines, i] =tempArray[i];

You can pass multiple delimiters to the split method.

i.e
numberOfColumns = line.Split(new char[] { '\t', ' ' }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries).Length;
