somthing like this oughta do it (with a few assumptions):

String str ="abcd|efgh";
int a=str.IndexOf("|");
String final_value=str.Substring(a+1);

Assumes you have a string with at least one delimeter:
string str ="abcd|efgh";
String final_value=str.Split('|')[1]

Another approach might be to use LastIndexOf method which returns the last occurrence of a string or characters within the string.

string str = "ABCD|EFGH";
var stringResult = str.Substring(str.LastIndexOf('|') + 1);
