I am developing a Windows Application by using C#. I have a form in which I dragged one textBox and one button control. I want to retrieve the user Full Computer Name in the textBox by clicking the button.I wrote some codes for that as..........

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
 
{
 
string name = System.Environment.MachineName;
 
textBox1.Text = name[0].ToString();
 
}

By clicking the button, it retrieves only the first letter(eg: D for Donald-PC) of the Computer Name by which it starts but I want to retrieve the Full Name(eg: Donald-PC). Please someone help if I have make any change in my codes.Thanks

As Espen here showed you, the name[0] only gets the first char of the string "name"

This should fix your issue,
TextBox1.Text = System.Environment.MachineName;

You need to remove the "[0]" from "name". That shows the first character.
