The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Creates the string representation of a specified object.

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

public:
static String^ Concat(
	Object^ arg0
)

Parameters

arg0
Type: System::Object^

The object to represent, or null.

Return Value

Type: System::String^

The string representation of the value of arg0, or String::Empty if arg0 is null.

The Concat(Object^) method represents arg0 as a string by calling its parameterless ToString method.

The following example demonstrates the Concat method.

using namespace System;

int main()
{
   int i = -123;
   Object^ o = i;
   array<Object^>^objs = { -123, -456, -789};
   Console::WriteLine("Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:");
   Console::WriteLine("1) {0}", String::Concat(o));
   Console::WriteLine("2) {0}", String::Concat(o, o));
   Console::WriteLine("3) {0}", String::Concat(o, o, o));

   Console::WriteLine("\nConcatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:" );
   Console::WriteLine("4) {0}", String::Concat(o, o, o, o));
   Console::WriteLine("5) {0}", String::Concat( o, o, o, o, o));
   Console::WriteLine("\nConcatenate a 3-element object array:");
   Console::WriteLine("6) {0}", String::Concat(objs));
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:
//    1) -123
//    2) -123-123
//    3) -123-123-123
//    
//    Concatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:
//    4) -123-123-123-123
//    5) -123-123-123-123-123
//    
//    Concatenate a 3-element object array:
//    6) -123-456-789
