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
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte

The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Byte.ToString().

The following example converts a Byte to a String.

		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);
		}
