When I try condition with int variable and string variable
it gives an error

Please help me

Ajith

What I have tried:

C#
int nSet =0 ;
int nCount=0 ;
string  cPrevtag ="";

/* nCount and cPrevtag change with my method calling

if (nCount == 1 && cPrevtag = 'O')
   {
     nSet = nSet + 1;

   }

A char is not a string. = is not the same as ==.

Thanks, but I tried result is same

Two things wrong here:
if (nCount == 1 && cPrevtag = 'O')

1) cPrevtag is declared as a string, but your comparison is with a character - that isn;t allowed.
2) "=" is an assignment, not a comparison: and C# requires boolean results (unlike C and C++ which work with "non-zero-is-true"). The comparison operator is "=="

Try this:
if (nCount == 1 && cPrevtag == "O")

Hi Griff

I tried that it's still it's say operator '==' cannot be applied to operand string
is there any better way ?

Thanks in advance

Then you did something wrong. What we told you was correct and does work. But since you don't like to share little things like error messages, we are left to guessing what your problem is.

Read my code carefully: I changed the "=" to "==" *and* the 'O' to "O"

Sorry - that wasn't meant for you - it was intended for the OP... :blush:

There are numerous problems with your code, but this will compile. No idea if it works, since you don't show the rest of your app:

int nSet =0 ;
int nCount=0 ;
string cPrevtag ="";

/* nCount and cPrevtag change with my method calling */

if (nCount == 1 && cPrevtag == "O")
{
    nSet = nSet + 1;

}


As others have noted, you can't compare a string to a character ( single quotes indicate a character). Also, you have to use == for comparison. Finally, your comment wasn't closed */
