In this article we will check the special character in textbox like ^,$,@ etc. to implement this we used char.IsLetter if it is true it means if u entered special character like % then it cause error and give message that use alphabets only similarly ISNumber tells us that the input is numaric or not IsLower tells us input is lower case or not IsUpper tells us that input is uppercase or not IsWhiteSpace tell us that input has not any space at the end of text .
