Code Simplification: String Maximum Length

I was looking at some old code and ran across something that struck a chord of wrong with me.

string temp; 
temp = "There can only be one!";
if (temp.length > 15) temp = temp.substring(0, 15);

Then I thought we could use a little math to handle the problem:

string temp; 
temp = "There can only be one!";
temp = temp.substring(0, Math.Min(15, temp.Length));

I think Microsoft should have included this kind of method to the String class. Hope this helps.

      I use WordPress hosted. It is an easy to use and makes posting much easier than some of the others I have used. Your English is quite good so no worries.
