Convert.ToString Method (Int64, Int32)

Converts the value of a 64-bit signed integer to its equivalent String representation in a specified base.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public static string ToString(
	long value,
	int toBase
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int64
A 64-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 64-bit integers to String s with the ToString method in the radixes supported by the method.


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

      int[] radices = { 2, 8, 10, 16 };

      // Iterate through the values array.

         // Iterate through the radices.
