No need to worry, the TextInfo class provides this method! Smile | :)
 
Here is how you achieve TitleCase:
 
TextInfo myTextInfo = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.TextInfo;
 
string sampleStr = "this IS a sample text";
string titleStr = myTextInfo.ToTitleCase(sampleStr);
Console.WriteLine(titleStr);
 
The above code snippet will print the following:
 
This Is A Sample Text
 
More information regarding TextInfo can be found here.[^]
