C# – Split a string by another string in C#

.netc++splitstring

I've been using the Split() method to split strings, but this only appears to work if you are splitting a string by a character. Is there a way to split a string, with another string being the split by parameter?

I've tried converting the splitter into a character array, with no luck.

In other words, I'd like to split the string:

THExxQUICKxxBROWNxxFOX

by xx, and return an array with values:

THE, QUICK, BROWN, FOX

Best Solution

In order to split by a string you'll have to use the string array overload.

string data = "THExxQUICKxxBROWNxxFOX";

return data.Split(new string[] { "xx" }, StringSplitOptions.None);
