	object value


Type: System.Object

The value to write.

Exception Condition

An I/O error occurred.

If value is null, only the line terminator is written. Otherwise, the ToString method of value is called to produce its string representation, and the resulting string is written to the standard output stream.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

The following example uses the WriteLine(Object) method to display each value in an object array to the console.

using System;

                                 'a', 16907.32m };
      foreach (var value in values)
// The example displays the following output:
//    True
//    12.632
//    17908
//    stringValue
//    a
//    16907.32
