public static string ToString(
	decimal value,
	IFormatProvider provider
)

This implementation is identical to Decimal.ToString(IFormatProvider).

The following example converts each element in an array of Decimal values to its equivalent string representation in four different cultures.

// Define an array of numbers to display.
decimal[] numbers = { 1734231911290.16m, -17394.32921m,
                      3193.23m, 98012368321.684m };
// Define the culture names used to display them.
string[] cultureNames = { "en-US", "fr-FR", "ja-JP", "ru-RU" };

foreach (decimal number in numbers)
{
   Console.WriteLine("{0}:", Convert.ToString(number,
                             System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
   foreach (string cultureName in cultureNames)
   {
      System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(cultureName);
      Console.WriteLine("   {0}: {1,20}",
                        culture.Name, Convert.ToString(number, culture));
   }
   Console.WriteLine();
}   
// The example displays the following output:
//    1734231911290.16:
//       en-US:     1734231911290.16
