This implementation is identical to Int64.ToString().

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

' Create a NumberFormatInfo object and set several of its
' properties that control default integer formatting.
Dim provider As New System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo()
provider.NegativeSign = "minus "

Dim values() As Long = { -200, 0, 1000 }

For Each value As Long In values
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-6}  -->  {1,10}", _
                     value, Convert.ToString(value, provider))
' The example displays the following output:
'       -200    -->   minus 200
'       0       -->           0
'       1000    -->        1000
