Hi All,

I have the follwing URL stored within a string variable...

http://localhost:80/myfoldername

Using C#, how can I extract everything after the last '/' and store in a separate variable. In this example its 'myfoldername'? 'myfoldername' will vary in characters/size so the next time it could be called 'abcfolder' for example.

Thanks,

Rit

You should be able to use LastIndexOf and Substring.

string mystring = 'http://localhost:80/myfoldername';
string mynewstring = mystring.SubString(mystring.LastIndexOf('/')+1);
