String is a value types, this are implicitly derived from System. ValueType. This class actually overrides the implementation in System. Object, the base class for all objects which is a reference type itself.

Value types are stored in the Stack.

No wrong string is reference type its value store in heap.

Ya rajkumar is right, string, object are reference types. All remaining built in data types are value types.

String and object are reference types. While int, float, bool and all other are value types. Value types are stored on stack as well as heap. But strings are always stored on heap.

Really sure a String is not a primitive ?

String is always created in string buffer. So no stack, no heap is required for string. String is primitive because primitive data type which are understandable by respected language compiler and string is one of that data type.

String is reference type.

String s; where s is heap. So string is created on the heap.

String is always reference type so it can stored in heap memory.
