C# | Char.GetUnicodeCategory(String, Int32) Method with Examples

  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2019
Geek Week

This method is used to categorizes the character at the specified position in a specified string into a group identified by one of the UnicodeCategory values.

Syntax:

public static System.Globalization.UnicodeCategory GetUnicodeCategory (string s, int index);

Parameters:

  • s: It is the String.
  • index: It is the character position in s.

Return Value: This method returns a UnicodeCategory enumerated constant that identifies the group that contains the character at position index in s.



Exceptions:

  • ArgumentNullException: If the s is null.
  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException: If the index is less than zero or greater than the last position in s.

Below programs illustrate the use of Char.GetUnicodeCategory(String, Int32) Method:

Example 1:




// C# program to demonstrate the
// Char.GetUnicodeCategory(String,
// Int32) Method
using System;
using System.Globalization;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
        try {
  
            // calling check() Method
            check("1234", 3);
            check("Tsunami", 0);
            check("psyc0lo", 2);
        }
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
        catch (ArgumentOutOfRangeException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
  
    // Defining check() method
    public static void check(string s, int i)
    {
  
        // checking condition
        // using GetNumericValue() Method
        UnicodeCategory val = Char.GetUnicodeCategory(s, i);
  
        // Display the values
        Console.WriteLine("the letter present at "+
                      "index {0} is {1} ", i, val);
    }
}
Output:
the letter present at index 3 is DecimalDigitNumber 
the letter present at index 0 is UppercaseLetter 
the letter present at index 2 is LowercaseLetter

Example 2: For ArgumentNullException




// C# program to demonstrate the
// Char.GetUnicodeCategory(String,
// Int32) Method
using System;
using System.Globalization;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
        try {
  
            // calling check() Method
            check("1234", 3);
            check("Tsunami", 0);
            check("psyc0lo", 2);
            Console.WriteLine("");
            Console.WriteLine("s is null");
            check(null, 2);
        }
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
        catch (ArgumentOutOfRangeException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
    // Defining check() method
    public static void check(string s, int i)
    {
        // checking condition
        // using GetNumericValue() Method
        UnicodeCategory val = Char.GetUnicodeCategory(s, i);
  
        // Display the values
        Console.WriteLine("the letter present at "+
                      "index {0} is {1} ", i, val);
    }
}
Output:
the letter present at index 3 is DecimalDigitNumber 
the letter present at index 0 is UppercaseLetter 
the letter present at index 2 is LowercaseLetter 

s is null
Exception Thrown: System.ArgumentNullException

Example 3: For ArgumentOutOfRangeException




// C# program to demonstrate the
// Char.GetUnicodeCategory(String,
// Int32) Method
using System;
using System.Globalization;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main()
    {
        try {
  
            // calling check() Method
            check("1234", 3);
            check("Tsunami", 0);
            check("psyc0lo", 2);
            Console.WriteLine("");
            Console.WriteLine("index is less than zero");
            check("null", -1);
        }
        catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
        catch (ArgumentOutOfRangeException e) {
  
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
    // Defining check() method
    public static void check(string s, int i)
    {
        // checking condition
        // using GetNumericValue() Method
        UnicodeCategory val = Char.GetUnicodeCategory(s, i);
  
        // Display the values
        Console.WriteLine("the letter present at "+
                      "index {0} is {1} ", i, val);
    }
}
Output:
the letter present at index 3 is DecimalDigitNumber 
the letter present at index 0 is UppercaseLetter 
the letter present at index 2 is LowercaseLetter 

index is less than zero
Exception Thrown: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException
