C# class property update

Hi

I have below class

public string CallTime
    {
        public String QStateCode { get; set; }
        public int   CallID {get;set}
       
}

I get QStateCode as from service call. The  value is for e.g is  "072 - San Francisco"

I need QStateCode = "072" to be displayed to the UI. So I need send it to UI.  How do I achieve this.

Thanks

Sorry I did an error. Its a class
public class CallTime
    {
        public String QStateCode { get; set; }
        public int   CallID {get;set}
    }
The web service populates instance of this class. I want to bind the instance to the UI. But the sevice populates
QStateCode = "072 - San Francisco".  I want to write some clean code to make the value ="072". should I create a new property.

Hi;

Make your class like this which is all that is needed.
public class CallTime
{
    private String qStateCode; 
    public String QStateCode 
    {
        get { return qStateCode; }
        set 
        {
            int index = value.IndexOf(' ');
            qStateCode = value.Substring(0, index);
        }
    }
    public int CallID { get; set; }
}

Along with what Fernando has stated, if you do not wish to loose the name portion of the code, you could add an additional property with which to place the information; e.g. -
public class CallTime
{
	private string qStateCode;
	private string qStateName;

	public string QStateCode
	{
		get { return qStateCode; }
		set
		{
			if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(value))
			{
				var pair = value.Split('-');
				if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(pair[0]))
					qStateCode = pair[0].Trim();

				if (pair.Count() > 1 && !string.IsNullOrEmpty(pair[1]))
					qStateName = pair[1].Trim();
			}
		}
	}

	public string QStateName
	{
		get { return qStateName; }
	}

	public int CallID { get; set; }
}
