Convert.ToString Method (Byte, IFormatProvider)

Converts the value of the specified 8-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent string representation, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

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

public static string ToString(
	byte value,
	IFormatProvider provider
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte

The 8-bit unsigned integer to convert.

provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider

An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Byte.ToString.

The following example converts each element in an unsigned byte array to its equivalent string representation using the formatting conventions of the en-US and fr-FR cultures. Because the "G" specifier by default outputs only decimal digits in a byte value's string representation, the provider parameter does not affect the formatting of the returned string.

byte[] numbers = { 12, 100, Byte.MaxValue };
// Define the culture names used to display them. 
string[] cultureNames = { "en-US", "fr-FR" };

foreach (byte number in numbers)
{
   Console.WriteLine("{0}:", Convert.ToString(number,
                             System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
   foreach (string cultureName in cultureNames)
   {
      System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(cultureName);
      Console.WriteLine("   {0}: {1,20}",
                        culture.Name, Convert.ToString(number, culture));
   }
   Console.WriteLine();
}   
// The example displays the following output: 
//       12: 
//          en-US:                   12 
//          fr-FR:                   12 
//        
//       100: 
//          en-US:                  100 
//          fr-FR:                  100 
//        
//       255: 
//          en-US:                  255 
//          fr-FR:                  255
