Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of this Tuple<T1, T2> object.

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1, Item2), where Item1 and Item2 represent the values of the Item1 and Item2 properties. If either property value is null, it is represented as String.Empty.

The following example illustrates the ToString method.

using System;

public class Class1
   public static void Main()
      Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>[] scores = 
                      { new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Abbey", 92), 
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Dave", 88),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Ed", null),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Jack", 78),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Linda", 99),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Judith", 84), 
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Penelope", 82),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Sam", 91) }; 
      foreach (var score in scores)
// The example displays the following output:
//       (Abbey, 92)
//       (Dave, 88)
//       (Ed, )
//       (Jack, 78)
//       (Linda, 99)
//       (Judith, 84)
//       (Penelope, 82)
