LINQ # - How to split and get value based on my count


How to split and get value based on my count.

For example,

I have inputcount = 2
MyString = "ABC_21-NIM-3547-789_23-278";

i want to get the final string is "ABC_21-NIM". because my input is "2". so i want to split("-") and get the values.

so final output after   splitting
 ABC_21-NIM ( here ABC_21 is first string and NIM is second string)

how to form the values using LINQ C#.?

Please use this -

We can use simple string.split method to get this.


string MyString = "ABC_21-NIM-3547-789_23-278";
string[] intime = MyString.Split(new char[] { '-' },StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string finalstring = string.Join("-", intime.Take(2));
