Use string.Length

Eg: s1.Length

(If unicode it would be 2 bytes per character)

If there are two string with the japanese character, then also length will return the length of the string not the bytes.

I want to calculate the number bytes of string,
if s="123" then it should return 3 and if s is of type string with the 3 japanese letters then it should return 6 bytes.

Thanks and Regards,
