UInt32.ToString Method

Converts the numeric value of this instance to its equivalent string representation.

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

Public Overrides Function ToString As String

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of the value of this instance, consisting of a sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9, without a sign or leading zeroes.

The ToString method formats a UInt32 value in the default ("G", or general) format by using the NumberFormatInfo object of the current culture. If you want to specify a different format or culture, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format

For culture

Use the overload

Default ("G") format

A specific culture


A specific format

Default (current) culture


A specific format

A specific culture

ToString(String, IFormatProvider)

The following example displays a UInt32 value by using the default ToString method. It also displays the string representations of the UInt32 value that results from using some standard format specifiers. The examples are displayed using the formatting conventions of the en-US culture.

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim value As UInteger = 1632490
      ' Display value using default ToString method.

      ' Define an array of format specifiers. 
      Dim formats() As String = { "G", "C", "D", "F", "N", "X" }
      ' Display value using the standard format specifiers. 
      For Each format As String In formats
         Console.WriteLine("{0} format specifier: {1,16}", _
                           format, value.ToString(format))         
   End Sub 
End Module 
' The example displays the following output: 
'       1632490 
'       G format specifier:          1632490 
'       C format specifier:    $1,632,490.00 
'       D format specifier:          1632490 
'       F format specifier:       1632490.00 
'       N format specifier:     1,632,490.00 
'       X format specifier:           18E8EA
