In this chapter you will learn

  • What is string?
  • How many types of string function in C#?
  • How to use C# string function in programming?
  • What is the difference between string and String?

In C# programming, string is another kind of data type that represents Unicode Characters. It is the alias of System.String however, you can also write System.String instead of string. It is the sequence of character in which each character is a Unicode character.

There is no difference between string and String because string is the alias of System.String. Most of the developers get confused what to use between sting and String. Technically there is no difference between them and they can use any of them. However, you will have to use “using System” to use the String in C#. Another difference is String is a class name whereas string is a reserved keyword. You should always use string instead of String.
