C# String.Chars[] Property

The String.Chars[] property is used to access the elements/characters from a string. Just like C, C++, and other programming languages – we can access the characters of a string from the specified index.


public char this[int index] { get; }


  • index is the position, from where you have to access the character, index minimum value is 0 and maximum value is length-1.

Return Value

char – It returns a character.


string str = "IncludeHelp";

accessing characters:
str[0]: 'I'
str[1]: 'n'
str[str.Lenght-1]: 'p'

C# example to print characters of a string using String.Chars[] property

using System;
using System.Text;

namespace Test {
  class Program {
    static void Main(string[] args) {
      //string variable declaration
      string str = "IncludeHelp";

      //printing first and last characters
      Console.WriteLine("First character is: " + str[0]);
      Console.WriteLine("Last character is: " + str[str.Length - 1]);

      //printing all characters based on the index
      for (int loop = 0; loop < str.Length; loop++) {
        Console.WriteLine("character at {0} index is = {1}", loop, str[loop]);

      //hit ENTER to exit


First character is: I
Last character is: p
character at 0 index is = I
character at 1 index is = n
character at 2 index is = c
character at 3 index is = l
character at 4 index is = u
character at 5 index is = d
character at 6 index is = e
character at 7 index is = H
character at 8 index is = e
character at 9 index is = l
character at 10 index is = p
