Ejemplos

En el ejemplo siguiente se Length muestra la propiedad.The following example demonstrates the Length property.

// Sample for String::Length
using namespace System;
int main()
{
   String^ str = "abcdefg";
   Console::WriteLine( "1) The length of '{0}' is {1}", str, str->Length );
   Console::WriteLine( "2) The length of '{0}' is {1}", "xyz", ((String^)"xyz")->Length );
   int length = str->Length;
   Console::WriteLine( "1) The length of '{0}' is {1}", str, length );
}

/*
This example displays the following output:
   1) The length of 'abcdefg' is 7
   2) The length of 'xyz' is 3
   3) The length of 'abcdefg' is 7
*/
string str = "abcdefg";
Console.WriteLine("1) The length of '{0}' is {1}", str, str.Length);
Console.WriteLine("2) The length of '{0}' is {1}", "xyz", "xyz".Length);

int length = str.Length;
Console.WriteLine("3) The length of '{0}' is {1}", str, length);

// This example displays the following output:
//    1) The length of 'abcdefg' is 7
//    2) The length of 'xyz' is 3
//    3) The length of 'abcdefg' is 7
Class Sample

      Dim length As Integer = str.Length
      Console.WriteLine("1) The length of '{0}' is {1}", str, length)
   End Sub

La Length propiedad devuelve el número de Char objetos de esta instancia, no el número de caracteres Unicode.The Length property returns the number of Char objects in this instance, not the number of Unicode characters. La razón es que un carácter Unicode podría estar representado por más de uno Char.The reason is that a Unicode character might be represented by more than one Char. Utilice la System.Globalization.StringInfo clase para trabajar con cada carácter Unicode en lugar de cada Charuno de ellos.Use the System.Globalization.StringInfo class to work with each Unicode character instead of each Char.

En algunos lenguajes, como C y C++, un carácter nulo indica el final de una cadena.In some languages, such as C and C++, a null character indicates the end of a string. En .NET, se puede incrustar un carácter nulo en una cadena.In .NET, a null character can be embedded in a string. Cuando una cadena incluye uno o más caracteres nulos, se incluyen en la longitud de la cadena total.When a string includes one or more null characters, they are included in the length of the total string. Por ejemplo, en la siguiente cadena, las subcadenas "ABC" y "def" se separan con un carácter nulo.For example, in the following string, the substrings "abc" and "def" are separated by a null character. La Length propiedad devuelve 7, que indica que incluye los seis caracteres alfabéticos y el carácter nulo.The Length property returns 7, which indicates that it includes the six alphabetic characters as well as the null character.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;

void main()
{
   String^ characters = "abc" + L'0' + "def";
   Console::WriteLine(characters->Length);        // Displays 7
}
string characters = "abc\u0000def";
Console.WriteLine(characters.Length); // Displays 7
Imports System.Text

Module Example

   Public Sub Main()
      Dim characters As String = "abc" + ChrW(0) + "def"
      Console.WriteLine(characters.Length)       ' Displays 7
   End Sub
End Module
