How about:

string result = original.Replace("-", "- " + addedText);

Try something like:

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (this.textBox1.Text.IndexOf("-") > -1)
            {
                this.textBox1.Text = this.textBox1.Text.Substring(0, this.textBox1.Text.IndexOf("-") + 1) + "my added text";
            }
        }

Open in new window


If you need to preserve initial text after "-" (if existed), you may add another substring:


this.textBox1.Text.Substring(this.textBox1.Text.IndexOf("-")+1,
this.textBox1.Text.Length - this.textBox1.Text.IndexOf("-") -1);
