Convert.ToString Method (Int16, Int32)

July 28, 2014

Converts the value of a 16-bit signed integer to its equivalent String representation in a specified base.

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

public static string ToString(
	short value,
	int toBase
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int16
A 16-bit signed integer.
toBase
Type: System.Int32
The base of the return value, which must be 2, 8, 10, or 16.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The String representation of value in base toBase.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

toBase is not 2, 8, 10, or 16.

If value is negative and toBase is a non-decimal value, the returned string uses two's complement representation.

The following code example converts several 16-bit integers to String s with the ToString method in the radixes supported by the method.


// Example of the Convert.ToString( short, int ) method.
using System;

{
   static void RunToStringDemo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      short[] values = {
            short.MinValue, 
            -100, 
            999, 
            short.MaxValue };
      int[] radices = { 2, 8, 10, 16 };

      // Iterate through the values array.
      foreach (short value in values)
      {
         // Iterate through the radices.
         foreach (int radix in radices)
         {
            // Convert a value with a radix.
            string valueString =
                Convert.ToString(value, radix);

            outputBlock.Text += String.Format("{0,8}  {1,3}    {2}",
                value, radix, valueString) + "\n";
         }
      }
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
          "This example of Convert.ToString( short, int ) " +
          "generates \nthe following output. It converts several " +
          "short values to \nstrings using the radixes supported " +
          "by the method.") + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
          "\n   Value  Radix  String" +
          "\n   -----  -----  ------") + "\n";

      RunToStringDemo(outputBlock);
   }
