StringBuilder.ToString Method

Converts the value of this instance to a String.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
A string whose value is the same as this instance.

You must call the ToString method to convert the StringBuilder object to a String object before you can pass the string represented by the StringBuilder object to a method that has a String parameter or display it in the user interface.

The following example demonstrates calling the ToString method. This example is part of a larger example provided for the StringBuilder class.


// Display the number of characters in the StringBuilder and its string.
Console.WriteLine("{0} chars: {1}", sb.Length, sb.ToString());
