public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of this Tuple<T1, T2, T3> object.

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1, Item2, Item3), where Item1, Item2, and Item3 represent the values of the Item1, Item2, and Item3 properties, respectively. If any of the property values is null, it is represented as String.Empty.

The following example illustrates the ToString method.


using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      Tuple<string, double, int>[] scores = 
                    { Tuple.Create("Jack", 78.8, 8),
                      Tuple.Create("Abbey", 92.1, 9), 
                      Tuple.Create("Dave", 88.3, 9),
                      Tuple.Create("Sam", 91.7, 8), 
                      Tuple.Create("Ed", 71.2, 5),
                      Tuple.Create("Penelope", 82.9, 8),
                      Tuple.Create("Linda", 99.0, 9),
                      Tuple.Create("Judith", 84.3, 9) };
      Array.Sort(scores);
      foreach (var score in scores)
         outputBlock.Text += score.ToString() + "\n";
   }
}
// The example displays the following output;
//    (Abbey, 92.1, 9)
//    (Dave, 88.3, 9)
//    (Ed, 71.2, 5)
//    (Jack, 78.8, 8)
//    (Judith, 84.3, 9)
//    (Linda, 99, 9)
//    (Penelope, 82.9, 8)
//    (Sam, 91.7, 8)
