This C# code snippet demonstrates various string methods and properties.

using System;
 
class StringMethods
{
   static void Main()
   {
      char[] characterArray;
      int position;
      string result, string1;

      characterArray = new char[30];
 
      // create the output string
      result = "string = \"" + string1 + "\"";
 
      // Length property
      result += "\nstring length = " + string1.Length;
 
      // IndexOf method (returns -1 if not found)
      position = string1.IndexOf ("e");
      result += "\nstring contains an 'e' at index: " 
         + position;
 
      // find another "e"
      position = string1.IndexOf ("e", position + 1);
      result += "\nstring contains a second 'e' at index: "
         + position;

      result += "\n'Cissy' starts at index: "
         + position;
