C# – How to split a string by a multi-character delimiter in C#

.netc++string

What if I want to split a string using a delimiter that is a word?

For example, This is a sentence.

I want to split on is and get This and a sentence.

In Java, I can send in a string as a delimiter, but how do I accomplish this in C#?

Example from the docs:

string source = "[stop]ONE[stop][stop]TWO[stop][stop][stop]THREE[stop][stop]";
string[] stringSeparators = new string[] {"[stop]"};
string[] result;

// ...
result = source.Split(stringSeparators, StringSplitOptions.None);

foreach (string s in result)
{
    Console.Write("'{0}' ", String.IsNullOrEmpty(s) ? "<>" : s);
}
