  • Last Updated : 31 Jan, 2019

In C#, Char.IsSeparator() is a System.Char struct method which is used to check whether a Unicode character can be categorized as a separator character or not. This method can be overloaded by passing different type and number of arguments to it.

  1. Char.IsSeparator(Char) Method
  2. Char.IsSeparator(String, Int32) Method

Char.IsSeparator(Char) Method

This method is used to check whether the specified Unicode character matches any separator character not. If it matches then it returns True otherwise return False.

Syntax:



public static bool IsSeparator(char ch);

Parameter:

ch: It is required Unicode character of System.char type which is to be checked.

Return Type: The method returns True, if it successfully matches any separator, otherwise returns False. The return type of this method is System.Boolean.

Example:




// C# program to illustrate the
// Char.IsSeparator(Char) Method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Declaration of data type
        bool result;
  
        // checking if space
        // is a seprator
        char ch1 = ' ';
        result = Char.IsSeparator(ch1);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
  
        // checking if dot(.)
        // is a separator
        char ch2 = '.';
        result = Char.IsSeparator(ch2);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
}
Output:
True
False

Char.IsSeparator(String, Int32) Method

This method is used to check whether the specified string at specified position matches with any separator or not. If it matches then it returns True otherwise returns False.

Syntax:

public static bool IsSeparator(string str, int index);

Parameters:

Str: It is the required string of System.String type which is to be evaluate.
index: It is the position of character in string to be compared and type of this parameter is System.Int32.

Return Type: The method returns True if it successfully matches any separator at the specified index in the specified string, otherwise returns False. The return type of this method is System.Boolean.

Exceptions:

  • If the value of str is null then this method will give ArgumentNullException
  • If the index is less than zero or greater than the last position in str then this method will give ArgumentOutOfRangeException.

Example:




// C# program to illustrate the
// Char.IsSeparator(String, Int32) Method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Declaration of data type
        bool result;
  
        // checking for separator
        // in a string at a desired position
        string str1 = "GeeksforGeeks";
        result = Char.IsSeparator(str1, 2);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
  
        // checking for separator
        // in a string at a desired position
        string str2 = "geeks for geeks";
        result = Char.IsSeparator(str2, 5);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
}
Output:
False
True
