This method uses the composite formatting feature of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string. The resulting string is written to the output stream.

The format parameter consists of zero or more runs of text intermixed with zero or more indexed placeholders, called format items, that correspond to an object in the parameter list of this method. The formatting process replaces each format item with the text representation of the value of the corresponding object.

The syntax of a format item is {index[,alignment][:formatString]}, which specifies a mandatory index, the optional length and alignment of the formatted text, and an optional string of format specifier characters that govern how the value of the corresponding object is formatted.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: UI. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

Notes to Callers

This method is not called by C++ code. The C++ compiler resolves calls to WriteLine that include a string and four or more object parameters as a call to WriteLine(String, Object, Object, Object, Object),

The following example uses the WriteLine method to demonstrate the standard formatting specifiers for numbers, dates, and enumerations.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
