String.IConvertible.ToBoolean Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

For a description of this member, see ToBoolean.

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

bool IConvertible.ToBoolean(
	IFormatProvider provider
)

Parameters

provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider

This parameter is ignored.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the value of the current string is TrueString; false if the value of the current string is FalseString.

Implements

IConvertible.ToBoolean(IFormatProvider)

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

The value of the current string is not TrueString or FalseString.

This member is an explicit interface member implementation. It can be used only when the String instance is cast to an IConvertible interface. The recommended alternative is to call the Convert.ToBoolean(String) method.
