Converts the value of the specified 64-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent string representation.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

Public Shared Function ToString (
	value As ULong
) As String


Type: System.UInt64

The 64-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to UInt64.ToString().

The following example converts each element in an unsigned long integer array to its equivalent string representation.

Dim numbers() As ULong = { UInt64.MinValue, 1031, 189045, UInt64.MaxValue }
Dim result As String

For Each number As ULong 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 UInt64 value 0 to the String value 0.
'    Converted the UInt64 value 1031 to the String value 1031.
'    Converted the UInt64 value 189045 to the String value 189045.
'    Converted the UInt64 value 18446744073709551615 to the String value 18446744073709551615.
