ToString Method (Boolean)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Displays an X.509 certificate in text format.

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly:  System.Security (in System.Security.dll)

abstract ToString : 
        fVerbose:bool -> string 
override ToString : 
        fVerbose:bool -> string 

Parameters

fVerbose
Type: System..::..Boolean
true to display the public key, private key, extensions, and so forth; false to display information that is similar to the X509Certificate2 class, including thumbprint, serial number, subject and issuer names, and so on.

Return Value

Type: System..::..String
The certificate information.

As with all ToString methods, the output might not be consistent across versions of the .NET Framework, so the method results should not be parsed for content. Use the properties on the X509Certificate2 object to obtain precise information.

This method displays the certificate in text format. If the fVerbose parameter is set to true, the text display includes the public key, private key, and extensions. If fVerbose is set to false, the text display includes those fields available from the X.509 certificate, including thumbprint, serial number, subject and issuer names, and validity date information.
