Process::ToString Method ()

 

Formats the process's name as a string, combined with the parent component type, if applicable.

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

public:
virtual String^ ToString() override

Return Value

Type: System::String^

The ProcessName, combined with the base component's ToString return value.

Exception Condition
PlatformNotSupportedException

ToString is not supported on Windows 98.

The following example starts an instance of Notepad. The example then retrieves and displays various properties of the associated process. The example detects when the process exits, and displays the process's exit code.
