Convert.ToString Method (Single)

Converts the value of the specified single-precision floating-point number to its equivalent string representation.

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

public static string ToString(
	float value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Single
The single-precision floating-point number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Single.ToString().

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


float[] numbers = { Single.MinValue, -1011.351f, -17.45f, -3e-16f,
                    0f, 4.56e-12f, 16.0001f, 10345.1221f, Single.MaxValue };
string result;

foreach (float number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToString(number);
   Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
}                            
// The example displays the following output:
//    Converted the Single value -3.402823E+38 to the String value -3.402823E+38.
//    Converted the Single value -1011.351 to the String value -1011.351.
//    Converted the Single value -17.45 to the String value -17.45.
//    Converted the Single value -3E-16 to the String value -3E-16.
//    Converted the Single value 0 to the String value 0.
//    Converted the Single value 4.56E-12 to the String value 4.56E-12.
//    Converted the Single value 16.0001 to the String value 16.0001.
//    Converted the Single value 10345.12 to the String value 10345.12.
//    Converted the Single value 3.402823E+38 to the String value 3.402823E+38.
