stackoverflow.com/questions/3994644/c-sharp-logic-to-get-the-first-non-repeatingdistinct-character-from-the-string

LINQ version:

using System.Linq;
string str = "abcabda";
char result = str.FirstOrDefault(ch => str.IndexOf(ch) == str.LastIndexOf(ch));

Open in new window


Non LINQ version:

 
  for (int index = 0; index < str.Length; index++)
    {
        if (str.LastIndexOf(str[index]) == str.IndexOf(str[index]))
        {
            result = str[index];
            break;
        }
    }

I like the one-liner LINQ solution if you have a recent C#.NET, but for older versions of C# you may need to use the looping solution. Enjoy!
