My program has a search and update function. But it will only find a match if the user types in Jane Doe not jane doe. ATM my programs retrieving user input, converting into char array and changing the first letter of each word but this doesn't seem to work either. This is the code I'm using..

Any help on how to go about this would be great and why my method of conversion isn't working :)

In C#, strings have a number of comparison functions, such as the Equals function, that have case insensitive overloads.

Another possibility you might look into, if the array you're searching in is sorted, is the Array.BinarySearch<string> function.

Thanks, I'll look into that. – Jane Oct 7 '12 at 6:06
Are you able to explain why my method of comparison isn't working? – Jane Oct 7 '12 at 7:49
You didn't specify your method of comparison. Can you post the code? And the real code this time? – Mr Lister Oct 7 '12 at 8:33
Edited my post to include my if compare method – Jane Oct 7 '12 at 8:37
The inserting into array code segment is in a different method etc – Jane Oct 7 '12 at 8:39
