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

' Define an array of numbers to display.
Dim numbers() As Double = { -1.5345e16, -123.4321, 19092.123, _
                            1.1734231911290e16 }
' Define the culture names used to display them.
Dim cultureNames() As String = { "en-US", "fr-FR", "ja-JP", "ru-RU" }

For Each number As Double In numbers
   Console.WriteLine("{0}:", Convert.ToString(number, _
                             System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture))
   For Each cultureName As String In cultureNames
      Dim culture As New System.Globalization.CultureInfo(cultureName)
      Console.WriteLine("   {0}: {1,20}", _
                        culture.Name, Convert.ToString(number, culture))
   Next
   Console.WriteLine()
Next
