Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

	IFormatProvider provider

Not applicable.

Parameters

provider

An IFormatProvider that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

The string representation of the value of this instance as specified by provider.

The return value is formatted with the general numeric format specifier ("G").

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics:

The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation whose IFormatProvider.GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object. Typically, provider is a NumberFormatInfo object or a CultureInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo provides culture-specific information about the format of the string returned by this method. If provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), this instance is formatted with the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture.

The following example iterates an array of T:System.Int16 values and displays each of them to the console by calling the Int16.ToString(IFormatProvider) method with different format providers. Note that, because of the simple formatting defined by the default "G" format specifier, the formatted strings produced for each T:System.Int16 value are identical regardless of the value of the provider parameter.
