Public Shared Function ToString (
	value As Single
) As String

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.

Dim numbers() As Single = { Single.MinValue, -1011.351, -17.45, -3e-16, _
                            0, 4.56e-12, 16.0001, 10345.1221, Single.MaxValue }
Dim result As String

For Each number As Single 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)
Next                            
' 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.
