In this article we will explain how to use string Contains method or what is string Contains method in c# with example.


In c# programming language string Contains() method is a string method, the Contains()  method is used to check whether the specified substring exists in given string or not and it will return a boolean value.

In case, if substring exists in string then the contains method will return true otherwise it will return false.

Following is the example of using Contains()  method to check whether the given value exists within the string or not in c# programming language.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;

using System.Threading.Tasks;
namespace SQLTutorialsPoint
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            string msg = "Welcome to Sqltutorialspoint";
            string subtxt = "Sqltutorialspoint";
            Console.WriteLine("Does {0} String Contains {1}?: {2}", msg, subtxt, msg.Contains(subtxt));
            string subtxt1 = "";
            Console.WriteLine("Does {0} String Contains {1}?: {2}", msg, subtxt1, msg.Contains(subtxt1));
            Console.WriteLine("\nPress Enter Key to Exit.."); 


as you see above example, we used a Contains()  method to determine whether the given substring value is found in string or not and returning a bool value.
