Convert Char[] to String and Vice Versa

Today I was asked a question on the forums to convert a char array to string and vice versa. Here’s the code to do so:


static void Main(string[] args)
char[] cArr = { 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f'};
// Convert char[] to string
string str = new string(cArr);
Console.WriteLine("char[] to string: {0}", str);

// Convert string to char[]
Console.WriteLine("string to char[]");
char[] newArr = str.ToCharArray();
for (int i = 0; i < newArr.Length; i++)


Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
Dim cArr() As Char = { "a"c, "b"c, "c"c, "d"c, "e"c, "f"c}
' Convert char[] to string
Dim str As New String(cArr)
Console.WriteLine("char[] to string: {0}", str)

' Convert string to char[]
Console.WriteLine("string to char[]")
Dim newArr() As Char = str.ToCharArray()
For i As Integer = 0 To newArr.Length - 1
Next i
End Sub



Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance
