Convert.ToString Method (Boolean)

Converts the value of the specified Boolean to its equivalent String representation.

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

public static string ToString (
	bool value
)
public static String ToString (
	boolean value
)
public static function ToString (
	value : boolean
) : String

Parameters

value

A Boolean value.

Return Value

The String equivalent of the value of value.

This implementation is identical to Boolean.ToString.

The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Boolean to a String, using ToString.

public void ConvertStringBoolean(string stringVal) {
    
    bool boolVal = false;

    try {
        boolVal = System.Convert.ToBoolean(stringVal);
        if (boolVal) {
            System.Console.WriteLine(
                "String was equal to System.Boolean.TrueString.");
        }
        else {
            System.Console.WriteLine(
                "String was equal to System.Boolean.FalseString.");
        }
    }
    catch (System.FormatException){
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            "The string must equal System.Boolean.TrueString " +
            "or System.Boolean.FalseString.");
    }

    // A conversion from bool to string will always succeed.
    stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(boolVal);
    System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a string is {1}",
        boolVal, stringVal);
}

public void ConvertStringBoolean(String stringVal)
{
    boolean boolVal = false;

    try {        
        boolVal = System.Convert.ToBoolean(stringVal);
        if (boolVal) {            
            System.Console.WriteLine(
                "String was equal to System.Boolean.TrueString.");
        }
        else {            
            System.Console.WriteLine(
                "String was equal to System.Boolean.FalseString.");
        }
    }
    catch (System.FormatException exp) {        
        System.Console.WriteLine(
            ("The string must equal System.Boolean.TrueString "  
            + "or System.Boolean.FalseString."));
    }

    // A conversion from bool to string will always succeed.
    stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(boolVal);
    System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a string is {1}", 
        System.Convert.ToString(boolVal), stringVal);
} //ConvertStringBoolean
