Convert.ToString Method (Int64)

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

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static string ToString(
	long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int64
A 64-bit signed integer.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The String equivalent of the value of value.

This implementation is identical to Int64.ToString.

The following code example converts a 64-bit integer to a String with the ToString method, using default formatting.


// Example of the Convert.ToString( numeric types ) and 
// Convert.ToString( numeric types, IFormatProvider ) methods.
using System;
using System.Globalization;

/*
This example of Convert.ToString( numeric types ) and
Convert.ToString( numeric types, IFormatProvider )
converts values of each of the CLR base numeric types to strings,
using default formatting and a NumberFormatInfo object.

Note: Of the several NumberFormatInfo properties that are changed,
only the negative sign and decimal separator affect the conversions.
