Replacing a Character in a String

What's the "standard" way of replacing a character in a string?
Obviously, I can't say "myString[index] = character;" because strings
are immutable...

So what would be the "standard" way of doing this?

TIA

OK, if the above is a no-no for you, then use the StringBuilder class.

Dont know if there is necessarily a "standard" way, but here
is what I would do:

StringBuilder s = new StringBuilder(" astringoftext") ;
s[11] = 'q';
string sNew = s.ToString();

sNew is now "astringoft eqt"

and can now be assigned to the original string..

If you want to change one character with another one
use String.Replace

If you want to change one char at a certain index
use String.ToCharAr ray, do your change, then construct a new string from it
(not the most efficient way)

If it is necessary to modify the actual contents of a string-like object, use
the System.Text.Str ingBuilder class.

Is an apostrophe a character of special significance to MySQL in a way that would cause "Bob's dog" to become translated into a 12-character string when typed into a MySQL memo field?

Hello experts, I write a function named palindrome to determine if a character string is palindromic, and test it with some example strings. Is it suitable to add it to a company/project library as a small tool function according to its quality? I will be very happy to get your suggestion from every aspect on it: interface design, C language knowledge or algorithm efficient. Sincerely,

Hi, Help needed please. Basically I am wanting to update a 16 digit character string which is in a table called say accounts. If the account no. field is say 0502562389568745 I want to amend every record by taking away the leading zero of the account no. and replace it with a 9. So the result would be 9502562389568745 and I want to run this so that it will update every account no. in the accounts table.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
