Complex.ToString Method (IFormatProvider)
Converts the value of the current complex number to its equivalent string representation in Cartesian form by using the specified culture-specific formatting information.
Assembly: System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)
- Type: System.IFormatProvider
An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.
Return ValueType: System.String
The string representation of the current instance in Cartesian form, as specified by provider.
The string representation of the complex number returned by this method displays the number using its Cartesian coordinates in the form (a, b), where a is the real part of the complex number, and b is its imaginary part. Both a and b are formatted using the general format specifier ("G") and the conventions of the culture defined by provider.
The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation. Its GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object that provides culture-specific information about the format of the real and imaginary numbers in the returned string. If provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the returned string is formatted using the NumberFormatInfo object of the current culture.
The provider parameter can be one of the following:
A CultureInfo object that represents the culture that supplies formatting information
The NumberFormatInfo object that supplies formatting information.
