How to get the last n characters of a string in C#
In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the last n number of characters from a string in C#
Getting the last n characters
To access the last n characters of a string, we can use the built-in
Substring() method by passing the
string.Length-n as argument to it.
Where -n is the number of characters we need to get from the end of a string.
Here is an example, that gets the last 3 characters from a
string name = "pearson"; string lastThree = name.Substring(name.Length-3); Console.WriteLine(lastThree);
In the example above, we have passed
name.Length-3 as arguments to the
Substring() method. So it starts the extraction at index position
name.Length-3, and extract the rest of a string.
