Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation using the specified format.

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

public:
String^ ToString(
	String^ format
)

Parameters

format
Type: System::String^

A numeric format string.

Return Value

Type: System::String^

The string representation of the value of this instance as specified by format.

Exception Condition
FormatException

The format parameter is invalid.

The ToString(String^) method formats a UInt32 value in a specified format by using a NumberFormatInfo object that represents the conventions of the current culture. If you want to use the default ("G", or general) format or specify a different culture, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format

For culture

Use the overload

Default ("G") format

Default (current) culture

ToString()

Default ("G") format

A specific culture

ToString(IFormatProvider^)

A specific format

A specific culture

ToString(String^, IFormatProvider^)

The format parameter can be any valid Standard Numeric Format Strings, or any combination of Custom Numeric Format Strings. If format is equal to String::Empty or is null, the return value of the current UInt32 object is formatted with the general format specifier ("G"). If format is any other value, the method throws a FormatException.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics:

The format of the returned string is determined by the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture. Depending on the format parameter, this object controls symbols such as the group separator and the decimal point symbol in the output string. To provide formatting information for cultures other than the current culture, call the ToString(String^, IFormatProvider^) overload.

The following example displays a 32-bit unsigned integer value by using each standard format string and some custom format strings.
