how to convert character list into string list in C#?
Steve44 22-Mar-13 3:08am
Please provide more detail so we can answer your question. How is the character list stored? How do you want the string (list?) to look like after conversion?
What did you try so far? How can it be a problem?

here is a code:-
char[] letter = new char[50];
string asa;
int y = 0;
List<char> optionList = new List<char>();
List<string> temp = new List<string>();
char[] array = ar.ToCharArray();

for (int i = 0; i <= text.Length - 1; i++)
if (array[i] == ' ')
temp = new List<string> {(optionList).ToString()};
foreach (string asaaa in temp)

letter[i] = array[i];
optionList[i] = Convert.ToChar(letter[i]);
catch(Exception ex)

Solution 1

Start from here:[^].

And you list has the method ToArray.

Is the case closed?

Can you provide detail. What do you mean by string List (string is array of characters).

If you talking about to convert character array in string

char[] charAray = new char[] {'h','e','l','l','o' };
string mystring = new string(charAray);

If you need to convert char array into string array, then you have many solutions like iterations.
I recommend you to create an extension method, which can parse source into target type.
For more detail here is generic extension method for your reference

  public static class Extensions
        public static List<t> ToList<t>(this IEnumerable source) where T : class
            List<t> collection = new List<t>();

            foreach (var x in source)
                T info = Convert.ChangeType(x, typeof(T)) as T;

            return collection;


char[] charAray = new char[] {'h','e','l','l','o'};
List<string> strList = charAray.ToList<string>();
