Hi,

I need help, I have 4 characters: 1 2 3 4. I want to know how it is given as input. Like , 1234 or 123 or 234 or 124 or 134. If it is sequence like above then print "True" otherwise if sequence is reverse like 4321 or 432 or 421 or 431 then print "False". I can write code with If-else but want to know what is best and good way to too it.

Please help.

Thanks

You could write an extension method that would encapsulate this logic:

public static class ExtensionMethods
{
    public static bool IsInSequence(this string value)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < value.Length - 1; i++)
        {
            if (value[i] > value[i + 1]) return false;
        }

        return true;
    }
}

Open in new window


Then you would have a simple mechanism for invoking this logic:

string input = "1324";
bool sequenced = input.IsInSequence();

Just a small modification to line 5 above

for (int i = 0; i < value.Length - 2; i++)

to avoid index out of range exception.

Thanks!  I realized this before writing the code, but apparently my brain didn't feel the need to transmit that bit to my fingers   = )
