[SOLVED] Using C# to check if string contains a string in string array


I want to use C# to check if a string value contains a word in a string array. For example,

string stringToCheck = "text1text2text3";

string[] stringArray = { "text1", "someothertext", etc... };

if(stringToCheck.contains stringArray) //one of the items?


How can I check if the string value for ‘stringToCheck’ contains a word in the array?


here is how you can do it:

string stringToCheck = "text1";
string[] stringArray = { "text1", "testtest", "test1test2", "test2text1" };
foreach (string x in stringArray)
    if (stringToCheck.Contains(x))
        // Process...

UPDATE: May be you are looking for a better solution.. refer to @Anton Gogolev’s answer below which makes use of LINQ.
