Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of this Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6> object.

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1, Item2, Item3, Item4, Item5, Item6), where Item1, Item2, Item3, Item4, Item5, and Item6 represent the values of the Item1, Item2, Item3, Item4, Item5, and Item6 properties, respectively. If any of the property values is null, it is represented as String.Empty.

The following example defines a Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6> object that contains population data for New York City for each census from 1960 through 2000. The components of the sextuple are then displayed by a call to the ToString method.

using System;

public class Example
   public static void Main()
      // Get population data for New York City, 1960-2000.
      var population = Tuple.Create("New York", 7781984, 7894862, 
                                    7071639, 7322564, 8008278);
// The example displays the following output:
//    (New York, 7781984, 7894862, 7071639, 7322564, 8008278)
