# C#: Find the middle character(s) of a given string

## C# Sharp String: Exercise-49 with Solution

Write a C# Sharp program to find the central character(s) in a given string. Return the middle character if the string length is odd and return two middle characters if the string length is even.

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

``````using System;
using System.Linq;

namespace exercises
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
// Define different input strings and display their middle character(s)
string text = "Python";
Console.WriteLine("Original string: " + text);
Console.WriteLine("Middle character(s) of the said string: " + test(text));

text = "PHP";
Console.WriteLine("\nOriginal string: " + text);
Console.WriteLine("Middle character(s) of the said string: " + test(text));

text = "C#";
Console.WriteLine("\nOriginal string: " + text);
Console.WriteLine("Middle character(s) of the said string: " + test(text));
}

// Method to retrieve the middle character(s) of the input string
public static string test(string text)
{
// Calculate the length to extract the middle character(s)
int l = 1 - text.Length % 2;

// Using Substring to get the middle character(s) of the string
// If the string length is odd, returns a single character at the middle position
// If the string length is even, returns the two characters at the middle positions
return text.Substring(text.Length / 2 - l, 1 + l);
}
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original string: Python
Middle character(s) of the said string: th

Original string: PHP
Middle character(s) of the said string: H

Original string: C#
Middle character(s) of the said string: C#
```
