SByte.ToString Method

Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of the value of this instance, consisting of a negative sign if the value is negative, and a sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9 with no leading zeroes.

The ToString() method formats an SByte value in the default ("G", or general) format of the current culture. If you want to specify a different format or culture, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format

For culture

Use the overload

Default ("G") format

A specific culture

ToString(IFormatProvider)

A specific format

Default (current) culture

ToString(String)

A specific format

A specific culture

ToString(String, IFormatProvider)

The return value is formatted using the general numeric format specifier ("G") The string representation of the SByte value includes a negative sign if its value is negative, and a sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9 without leading zeros. The negative sign is defined by the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture.

To define the formatting of the signed byte value's string representation, call the ToString(String) method.

The following example displays an SByte value using the default ToString() method. It also displays the string representations of the SByte value that results from using a number of standard format specifiers. The examples are displayed using the formatting conventions of the en-US culture.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      sbyte value = -123;
      // Display value using default ToString method.
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString());            // Displays -123 
      // Display value using some standard format specifiers.
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("G"));         // Displays -123
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("C"));         // Displays ($-123.00)
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("D"));         // Displays -123
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("F"));         // Displays -123.00
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("N"));         // Displays -123.00
      Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("X"));         // Displays 85
   }
}
