myString.Split will not works(if Split can do the job please let me know how),i also will not prefere the
because the length of each variable is unpredected

String.Split works, provide you specify the RemoveEmptyEntries option, for instance:

string str = "123 456          7890";
string[] snum = str.Split(new char[]{' '}, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
int[] v = new int[snum.Length];
for (int n = 0; n < v.Length; n++ )
    v[n] = int.Parse(snum[n]);

Exactly correct. +5.
string[] numbers = myString.Split(new char[] { ' ', '\t' }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);

Enough said, I suggest, my 5.
If there are spaces for sure between variables, you can split that string with space and than you can use only those strings whose value is not ''.

Don't teach sloppy coding. For future, you should use string.Empty instead of "", to avoid hard-coded immediate constants, even this one, set aside StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries.
