Hi  there,

I am iterating over the array and my requirement is that i convert the current item of an array to lowercase but it seems that there is not method available. Can you please help, i want some thing like this

for (short i = 0; i <= objValues.Length - 1; i++)
                {
 if(objValues[i].GetType() == typeof(string))
                    {
                        if (objValues[i].ToLower() == (SQL_GETDATE).ToLower())
                        {
                            stbColumns.Append("@" + arrStrColumnsValues(i)+ ",");
                            cmSql.Parameters.AddWithValue(arrStrColumnsValues[i], objValues(i));
                        }
                    }
}

Modify the if statement as follows.
 
if (((string)objValues(i)).ToLower() == (SQL_GETDATE).ToLower())

Since we know it's a string already, won't this work?

objValues[i].ToString().ToLower()

Open in new window


But really, this is the wrong way to do a string compare:

string.Equals(objValues[i].ToString(), SQL_GETDATE, InvariantCulture.IgnoreCase)

Open in new window


That's the way I would do a string compare.
