Difference between String and StringBuilder in C#

CsharpProgrammingServer Side Programming

Strings in C#

String is immutable in C# that would mean you couldn’t modify it after it is created. It creates a new object of string type in memory if you will perform any operation.

string str1 = "Welcome!";
// creates a new string instance
str1 += "Hello";
str1 += "World”;

StringBuilder in C#

StringBuilder is mutable in C#. This means that if an operation is performed on the string, it will not create a new instance every time. With that, it will not create new space in memory, unlike Strings.

StringBuilder str1 = new StringBuilder("");
str1.Append("Hello World!");
string str2 = str1.ToString();
