Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
abstract ToString : provider:IFormatProvider -> string override ToString : provider:IFormatProvider -> string
Return ValueType: System.String
The string representation of the value of this instance as specified by provider.
This instance is formatted with the general numeric format specifier ("G").
The provider parameter is an object that implements the IFormatProvider interface. Its GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object that provides culture-specific information about the format of the string that is returned by this method. The object that implements IFormatProvider can be any of the following:
A CultureInfo object that represents the culture whose formatting rules are to be used.
A NumberFormatInfo object that contains specific numeric formatting information for this value.
If provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or a NumberFormatInfo object cannot be obtained from provider, the return value is formatted with the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture.
