hello,

how can I set a length of string in an output?

I'm having a statement as sb.Append(String.Format("\"{0}\"", order.FullName)).Append(",");

However, I need to limit FullName field to 25 character and not more.

Thanks.

string fullName = string.Empty;

if (order.FullName.Length > 24)
  fullName = order.FullName.Substring(0, 25);
else
  fullName = order.FullName;
0
