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

public static string ToString(
	decimal value,
	IFormatProvider provider
)

Parameters

Type: System.Decimal
The decimal number to convert.
provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider
An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Decimal.ToString(IFormatProvider).

The following example converts each element in an array of Decimal values to its equivalent string representation in four different cultures.


// Define an array of numbers to display.
decimal[] numbers = { 1734231911290.16m, -17394.32921m,
                      3193.23m, 98012368321.684m };
// Define the culture names used to display them.
string[] cultureNames = { "en-US", "fr-FR", "ja-JP", "ru-RU" };

foreach (decimal number in numbers)
{
   Console.WriteLine("{0}:", Convert.ToString(number,
                             System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
   foreach (string cultureName in cultureNames)
   {
      System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(cultureName);
      Console.WriteLine("   {0}: {1,20}",
                        culture.Name, Convert.ToString(number, culture));
   }
   Console.WriteLine();
}   
// The example displays the following output:
//    1734231911290.16:
//       en-US:     1734231911290.16
