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.

public class Example
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
      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)
         outputBlock.Text += score.ToString() + "\n";
// The example displays the following output:
//       (Abbey, 92)
//       (Dave, 88)
//       (Ed, )
//       (Jack, 78)
//       (Linda, 99)
//       (Judith, 84)
//       (Penelope, 82)
//       (Sam, 91)
