Convert.ToString Method (Byte)

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent String representation.

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

public static string ToString (
	byte value
)
public static String ToString (
	byte value
)
public static function ToString (
	value : byte
) : String

Parameters

value

An 8-bit unsigned integer.

Return Value

The String equivalent of the value of value.

This implementation is identical to Byte.ToString.

The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Byte to a String, using ToString.

public void ConvertStringByte(string stringVal) {
    byte byteVal = 0;
    
    try {
        byteVal = System.Convert.ToByte(stringVal);
        System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a byte is: {1}",
            stringVal, byteVal);
    } 
    catch (System.OverflowException) {
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            "Conversion from string to byte overflowed.");
    }
    catch (System.FormatException) {
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            "The string is not formatted as a byte.");
    }
    catch (System.ArgumentNullException) {
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            "The string is null.");
    }
    
    //The conversion from byte to string is always valid.
    stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(byteVal);
    System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a string is {1}",
        byteVal, stringVal);
}

public void ConvertStringByte(String stringVal) 
{
    ubyte byteVal = 0;

    try {        
        byteVal = System.Convert.ToByte(stringVal);
        System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a byte is: {1}", stringVal, 
            System.Convert.ToString(byteVal));
    }
    catch (System.OverflowException exp) {        
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            "Conversion from string to byte overflowed.");
    }
    catch (System.FormatException exp) {        
        System.Console.WriteLine("The string is not formatted as a byte.");
    }
    catch (System.ArgumentNullException exp) {        
        System.Console.WriteLine("The string is null.");
    }

    //The conversion from byte to string is always valid.
    stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(byteVal);
    System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a string is {1}", 
        System.Convert.ToString(byteVal), stringVal);
} //ConvertStringByte
