The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Converts the value of the specified 16-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent string representation.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

public static string ToString(
	ushort value


Type: System.UInt16

The 16-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to UInt16.ToString().

The following example converts each element in an array of unsigned 16-bit integer values to its equivalent string representation.

ushort[] numbers = { UInt16.MinValue, 103, 1045, UInt16.MaxValue };
string result;

foreach (ushort number in numbers)
   result = Convert.ToString(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the UInt16 value 0 to the String value 0.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 103 to the String value 103.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 1045 to the String value 1045.
//    Converted the UInt16 value 65535 to the String value 65535.
