use this: char a = Convert.ToChar(Console.ReadLine()); Hope that'll solve the problem.


To mitigate against the potentiality of somebody typing in more than 1 character and breaking the program, try an if statement, and then convert to a char, i.e.: Console.WriteLine("Value of a = "); string aCheck = Console.ReadLine(); if(aCheck.Length > 1){ Console.WriteLine("Only 1 char please."); } else{ char a = aCheck[0]; //or you can use the "Convert.ToChar" method here, as mesiaserwin showed. if(b>2 && c>3 || a>2){ //... } }


Yes..Thanx.. The problem is solved


I'm glad to be of help :D
