Reading values from SPFieldMultiChoice field

Reading values from a Multi Choice field sometimes gives lot of pains…it inserts “;#” between multiple values.

I will show you the following way to read values from the multi choice field which does not has this limitation

SPList list = web.Lists["{YourList}"]; 
SPListItem result = list.GetItemById(1);
SPFieldMultiChoice  choceField = result.Fields.GetField("MyMultiChoice") as SPFieldMultiChoice;
string multiChoiceValues= choceField.GetFieldValueAsText(result["MyMultiChoice"]);
