Console.WriteLine Method (UInt32)

Writes the text representation of the specified 32-bit unsigned integer value, followed by the current line terminator, to the standard output stream.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, UI := True)> _
Public Shared Sub WriteLine ( _
	value As UInteger _
Dim value As UInteger 



Type: System.UInt32

The value to write.


An I/O error occurred.


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.

The text representation of value is produced by calling the UInt32.ToString method.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

The following code example illustrates the use of the WriteLine method.

' System.Console.WriteLine 

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Imports System

Public Class TipCalculator
   Private Const tipRate As Double = 0.18

   Public Shared Sub Main()
      System.Environment.ExitCode = Calculator(System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs())
   End Sub 

   Public Shared Function Calculator(args() As String) As Integer 
      Dim billTotal As Double 
      If args.Length < 2 Then
         Console.WriteLine("usage: TIPCALC total")
         Return 1
            billTotal = Double.Parse(args(1))
            Console.WriteLine("usage: TIPCALC total")
            Return 1
         End Try 
         Dim tip As Double = billTotal * tipRate
         Console.WriteLine("Bill total:" & vbTab & "{0,8:c}", billTotal)
         Console.WriteLine("Tip total/rate:" & vbTab & "{0,8:c} ({1:p1})", tip, tipRate)
         Console.WriteLine("".PadRight(24, "-"c))
         Console.WriteLine("Grand total:" & vbTab & "{0,8:c}", billTotal + tip)
         Return 0
      End If 
   End Function 'Main
End Class 'TipCalculator

'Example Output: 

'Bill total:       $52.23 
'Tip total/rate:    $9.40 (18.0 %) 
'Grand total:      $61.63
