Convert.ToString Method (Int16, IFormatProvider)

 

Converts the value of the specified 16-bit signed integer to its equivalent string representation, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

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

public static string ToString(
	short value,
	IFormatProvider provider
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int16

The 16-bit signed integer to convert.

provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider

An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System.String

The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Int16.ToString(IFormatProvider).

The following example defines a custom NumberFormatInfo class that defines its negative sign as the string "~" and its positive sign as the string "!". It then calls the ToString(Int16, IFormatProvider) method to convert each element in an array of 16-bit integers to its equivalent string representation. The conversion uses the invariant culture as well as the custom NumberFormatInfo object.

short[] numbers = { Int16.MinValue, Int16.MaxValue};
System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo nfi = new System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo();
nfi.NegativeSign = "~";
nfi.PositiveSign = "!";

foreach (short number in numbers)
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-8}  -->  {1,8}", 
                     Convert.ToString(number, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture), 
                     Convert.ToString(number, nfi));
// The example displays the following output:
//       -32768    -->    ~32768
//       32767     -->     32767
