c# - How to get number of characters from right side of a string

Get number of characters from String right side
The String represents text as a sequence of UTF-16 code units. The String is a sequential collection of characters that is used to represent text. The String is a sequential collection of System.Char objects.

The following .net c# tutorial code demonstrates how we can get a number of characters from the right side of a String instance. So, in this .net c# tutorial code we will take only a specified number of characters from a String object’s right side.

To achieve this, here we create a custom function whose name is ‘right’. This custom function gets a substring from the source String. We get the substring from the source String at the very end position with a specified length.

The String SubString(int startIndex) method overload retrieves a substring from this instance where the substring starts at a specified character position and continues to the end of the String.

So using SubString(int startIndex) method we can get a specified number of characters from the right side of a String instance. We have to pass the source String length minus the specified number of characters length as the startIndex parameter value to the Substring(int startIndex) method.

        //this line get right most 6 letters from string
        string rightSubString = right(plants,6);

        Label1.Text += "<br />right most 6 characters from plants string........<br />";
        Label1.Text += rightSubString;

        Label1.Text += "<br /><br />right most 13 characters from plants string........<br />";
        Label1.Text += right(plants,13);
