Finding the Start Index of the Specified Range in C#

The Range Structure is introduced in C# 8.0. It represents a range that has a start and end indexes. You are allowed to find the start index of the given range with the help of Start Property provided by the Range struct.

Syntax:

public property Index Start { Index get(); };

Here, Index represents the inclusive start index of the range.

// C# program to illustrate the use
// of Start property of Range struct
using System;
  
namespace range_example {
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
  
        // Creating range
        // using Range Constructor
        var r1 = new Range(0, 5);
  
        // Creating range
        // using range operator
        Range r2 = 3..7;
  
        // Finding the Starting 
        // index of r1 and r2 ranges
        // Using Start property
        var res1 = r1.Start;
        Console.WriteLine("Staring index of r1 range: " + res1);
  
        var res2 = r2.Start;
        Console.WriteLine("Starting index of r2 range: " + res2);
    }
}
}

        // Finding the start index 
        // of the specified range

        var res1 = r1.Start;
        var res2 = r2.Start;
        Console.WriteLine("Start Index of Range {0} is {1}"+
               " and the item is {2}", r1, res1, arr[res1]);
  
        Console.WriteLine("Start Index of Range {0} is {1}"+
               " and the item is {2}", r2, res2, arr[res2]);
    }
}
}

Output:

Start Index of Range 0..3 is 0 and the item is Archery
Start Index of Range 4..7 is 4 and the item is Boxing
