Return Value

Type: System.String
value is returned unchanged.

The following example passes a string to the ToString(String) method and calls the Object.ReferenceEquals method to confirm that the method returns the original string. The example also calls the String.IsInterned method to ensure that the two strings are not identical because the original string is interned.
