Guid.ToString Method

Returns a String representation of the value of this instance in registry format.

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

Return Value

Type: System.String
A String formatted in this pattern:
xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
where the value of the GUID is represented as a series of lower-case hexadecimal digits in groups of 8, 4, 4, 4, and 12 digits and separated by hyphens. An example of a return value is "382c74c3-721d-4f34-80e5-57657b6cbc27".

This method provides a default GUID format that is sufficient for typical use; however, other versions of this method that take a format parameter provide a few common format variations.
