Converts the value of the specified single-precision floating-point number to its equivalent string representation, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Function ToString ( _
	value As Single, _
	provider As IFormatProvider _
) As String

Parameters

value
Type: System.Single
The single-precision floating-point number 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 Single.ToString(IFormatProvider).

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


' Define an array of numbers to display.
Dim numbers() As Single = { -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 Single 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   
' The example displays the following output:
