Convert.ToString Method (Int32, Int32)

Converts the value of a 32-bit signed integer to its equivalent String representation in a specified base.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public static string ToString(
	int value,
	int toBase
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
A 32-bit signed integer.
toBase
Type: System.Int32
The base of the return value, which must be 2, 8, 10, or 16.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The String representation of value in base toBase.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

toBase is not 2, 8, 10, or 16.

If value is negative and toBase is a non-decimal value, the returned string uses two's complement representation.

The following code example converts several 32-bit integers to String s with the ToString method in the radixes supported by the method.


// Example of the Convert.ToString( int, int ) method.
using System;

class Example
{
   static void RunToStringDemo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      int[] values = {
            int.MinValue, 
            -100, 
            0, 
            99999, 
            int.MaxValue };
      int[] radices = { 2, 8, 10, 16 };

      // Iterate through the values array.
      foreach (int value in values)
      {
         // Iterate through the radices.
         foreach (int radix in radices)
         {
            // Convert a value with a radix.
            string valueString =
                Convert.ToString(value, radix);

            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,13}  {1,3}    {2}",
                value, radix, valueString) + "\n";
         }
      }
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
          "This example of Convert.ToString( int, int ) " +
          "generates \nthe following output. It converts several " +
          "int values to \nstrings using the radixes supported " +
          "by the method.") + "\n";

          "\n     Value     Radix    String" +
          "\n     -----     -----    ------") + "\n";

      RunToStringDemo(outputBlock);
