Converts the value of the specified 8-bit signed integer to its equivalent string representation.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

public static string ToString(
	sbyte value


Type: System.SByte

The 8-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to SByte.ToString().

The following example converts each element in a signed byte array to its equivalent string representation.

sbyte[] numbers = { SByte.MinValue, -12, 0, 16, SByte.MaxValue };
string result;

foreach (sbyte 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 SByte value -128 to the String value -128.
//    Converted the SByte value -12 to the String value -12.
//    Converted the SByte value 0 to the String value 0.
//    Converted the SByte value 16 to the String value 16.
//    Converted the SByte value 127 to the String value 127.
