C# Question

How do I convert a single char to a string?

I'd like to enumerate a

string
and instead of it returning
chars
I'd like to have the iterative variable be of type
string
. This probably isn't possible to have the iterative type be a
string
so what is the most efficient way to iterate through this string?

Do I need to create a new
string
object with each iteration of the loop or can I perform a cast somehow?

String myString = "Hello, World";
foreach (Char c in myString)
{
// what I want to do in here is get a string representation of c
// but I can't cast expression of type 'char' to type 'string'
String cString = (String)c; // this will not compile
}

Answer

Use the .ToString() Method

String myString = "Hello, World";
foreach (Char c in myString)
{
    String cString = c.ToString(); 
}
