One Dimensional Array in C#


In this chapter you will learn:

What is single dimensional array?
How to declare one dimensional array?
How to use single dimensional array in C# programming?

The one dimensional array or single dimensional array in C# is the simplest type of array that contains only one row for storing data. It has single set of square bracket (“[]”). To declare single dimensional array in C#, you can write the following code.

 int[] age=new int[6];

The array age is a one dimensional array that contains only 6 elements in a single row.

Programming Example of One Dimensional Array:


 int i = num[2];

Programming Example of Declaration and Initialization of Array:

using System;
namespace One_Dimensional_Array
  class Program
     static void Main(string[] args)
        //Declaring single dimensional array
        string[] Books = new string[5];
        Books[0] = "C#";
        Books[1] = "Java";
        Books[2] = "VB.NET";
        Books[3] = "C++";
        Books[4] = "C";
        Console.WriteLine("All the element of Books array            is:\n\n");
        int i = 0;
        //Formatting Output
        for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
           Console.Write("{0}\t", Books[i]);



All the element of Books array is:

    1       2        3              4        5

    C#    Java    VB.NET    C++    C


In this chapter you learned about single dimensional array in C#. You also learned how to store value and access value from single dimensional array. In next chapter you will learn about multi dimensional array in C#.
