[ACCEPTED]-Best way to break a string on the last dot on C#-string

Accepted answer

If you want performance, something like:

    string s = "a.b.c.d";
    int i = s.LastIndexOf('.');
    string lhs = i < 0 ? s : s.Substring(0,i),
        rhs = i < 0 ? "" : s.Substring(i+1);

You could use Path.GetFilenameWithoutExtension()

or if that won't work for 1 you:

int idx = filename.LastIndexOf('.');

if (idx >= 0)
   filename = filename.Substring(0,idx);
Score: 3

To get the path without the extension, use

System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(fileName)

and 3 to get the extenstion (including the dot), use

Path.GetExtension(fileName)

EDIT:

Unfortunately 2 GetFileNameWithoutExtension strips off the 1 leading path, so instead you could use:

if (path == null)
{
    return null;
}
int length = path.LastIndexOf('.');
if (length == -1)
{
    return path;
}
return path.Substring(0, length);

The string method LastIndexOf maybe of some use to 3 you here.

But the Path or FileInfo operators 2 will be better suited for filename based 1 operations.

I think what you're really looking for is 1 Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension Method (System.IO) but just for the heck of it:

string input = "foo.bar.foobar";
int lastDotPosition = input.LastIndexOf('.');

if (lastDotPosition == -1)
{
    Console.WriteLine("No dot found");
}
else if (lastDotPosition == input.Length - 1)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Last dot found at the very end");

}
else
{
    string firstPart = input.Substring(0, lastDotPosition);
    string lastPart = input.Substring(lastDotPosition + 1);

    Console.WriteLine(firstPart);
    Console.WriteLine(lastPart);
}

Path.GetExtension() should help you.

What about using the LastIndexOf method 3 which returns the last found position of 2 a character. Then you can use Substring 1 to extract what you want.

Score: 1

String.LastIndexOf will return you the position 3 of the dot if it ever exists in the string. You 2 can then String.Substring methods to split 1 the string.

Score: 1

You can use string's method

LastIndexOf and 1 substring to acomplish the task.
