Convert.ToString Method (Int16)

Converts the value of the specified 16-bit signed integer to its equivalent string representation.

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

public static string ToString(
	short value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int16
The 16-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Int16.ToString().

The following example converts each element in an array of 16-bit integers to its equivalent string representation.


short[] numbers = { Int16.MinValue, -138, 0, 19, Int16.MaxValue };
string result;

foreach (short number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToString(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
}     
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the Int16 value -32768 to the String value -32768.
//    Converted the Int16 value -138 to the String value -138.
//    Converted the Int16 value 0 to the String value 0.
//    Converted the Int16 value 19 to the String value 19.
//    Converted the Int16 value 32767 to the String value 32767.
