ToString Method (UInt64, IFormatProvider)

Convert::ToString Method (UInt64, IFormatProvider^)


Converts the value of the specified 64-bit unsigned integer to its equivalent string representation, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

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

static String^ ToString(
	unsigned long long value,
	IFormatProvider^ provider


Type: System::UInt64

The 64-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Type: System::IFormatProvider^

An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System::String^

The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to UInt64::ToString(IFormatProvider^).

The following example defines a custom NumberFormatInfo class that defines its negative sign as the string "~" and its positive sign as the string "!". It then calls the ToString(UInt64, IFormatProvider^) method to convert an unsigned long integer value to its equivalent string representation. The conversion uses both the invariant culture and the custom NumberFormatInfo object. The output indicates that this formatting information is not used, because by default the "G" format specifier does not include a positive sign with positive values.
