Hi there

Wonder if you can help

I have these string, any of which can be blank:
private string GetContactDetails(User user)
  string contact = string.Format("Contact:\t{0}\r\n", user.FullName);
  string email = string.Format("Email:\t{0}\r\n", user.Email);
  string phone = string.Format("Phone:\t{0}\r\n", user.Phone);

what I want to to return a string based on the values above i.e.

if contact and email has a value


Contact:  Rob
Email:    asdasd@hotmail.com

or if none of them have values, dont return any text

or if ONLY the phone has a value, show

Phone:    0283834757


hope this makes sense?
