Char.IsSeparator Char.IsSeparator Char.IsSeparator Char.IsSeparator Method

Definition

Indicates whether a Unicode character is categorized as a separator character.

Overloads

IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char)

Indicates whether the specified Unicode character is categorized as a separator character.

IsSeparator(String, Int32) IsSeparator(String, Int32) IsSeparator(String, Int32) IsSeparator(String, Int32)

Indicates whether the character at the specified position in a specified string is categorized as a separator character.

Remarks

The Unicode standard recognizes three subcategories of separators:

Note

The Unicode standard classifies the characters \u000A (LF), \u000C (FF), and \u000D (CR) as control characters (members of the UnicodeCategory.Control category), not as separator characters.

IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char) IsSeparator(Char)

Indicates whether the specified Unicode character is categorized as a separator character.

public:
 static bool IsSeparator(char c);
public static bool IsSeparator (char c);
static member IsSeparator : char -> bool
Public Shared Function IsSeparator (c As Char) As Boolean
Parameters
c
Char Char Char Char

The Unicode character to evaluate.

Returns

true if c is a separator character; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example lists the Char objects that are classified as separator characters.

using namespace System;

int main()
{
   for (int ctr = Convert::ToInt32(Char::MinValue); ctr <= Convert::ToInt32(Char::MaxValue); ctr++)
   {
      wchar_t ch = ctr;
      if (Char::IsSeparator(ch))
         Console::WriteLine("\u{0:X4} ({1})", (int) ch, Char::GetUnicodeCategory(ch).ToString());
   }
}

public:
 static bool IsSeparator(System::String ^ s, int index);
public static bool IsSeparator (string s, int index);
static member IsSeparator : string * int -> bool
Public Shared Function IsSeparator (s As String, index As Integer) As Boolean
Parameters
s
String String String String

true if the character at position index in s is a separator character; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example demonstrates IsSeparator.

using namespace System;
int main()
{
   String^ str =  "twain1 twain2";
   Console::WriteLine( Char::IsSeparator( 'a' ) ); // Output: "False"
   Console::WriteLine( Char::IsSeparator( str, 6 ) ); // Output: "True"
}

using System;

public class IsSeparatorSample {
	public static void Main() {
		string str = "twain1 twain2";

		Console.WriteLine(Char.IsSeparator('a'));		// Output: "False"
		Console.WriteLine(Char.IsSeparator(str, 6));	// Output: "True"
	}
}
Imports System

Module IsSeparatorSample

    Sub Main()

        Dim str As String
        str = "twain1 twain2"

        Console.WriteLine(Char.IsSeparator("a"c))       ' Output: "False"
        Console.WriteLine(Char.IsSeparator(str, 6))     ' Output: "True"

Remarks

Character positions in a string are indexed starting from zero.
