Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of the value of this object, which consists of a sequence of digits that range from 0 to 9 with no leading zeroes.

The return value is formatted with the general numeric format specifier ("G") and the NumberFormatInfo object for the thread current culture. To define the formatting of the Byte value's string representation, call the ToString method. To define both the format specifiers and culture used to create the string representation of a Byte value, call the ToString method.

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

For information about the thread current culture, see Thread.CurrentCulture.

The following example uses the ToString() method to display an array of byte values to the console.


byte[] bytes = { 0, 1, 14, 168, 255 };
foreach (byte byteValue in bytes)
   outputBlock.Text += byteValue + "\n";
// The example displays the following output if the current
// culture is en-US:
//       0
//       1
//       14
//       168
//       255
