Namespace:  System
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Extensions (in System.Runtime.Extensions.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static string ToString(
	bool value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Boolean

The Boolean value to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Boolean.ToString. It returns Boolean.TrueString for true values and Boolean.FalseString for false values.

The following example illustrates the conversion of a Boolean to a String, using ToString. It also illustrates that the string returned by the conversion equals either Boolean.TrueString or Boolean.FalseString.

bool falseFlag = false;
bool trueFlag = true;

Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(falseFlag));
Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(falseFlag).Equals(Boolean.FalseString));
Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(trueFlag));
Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(trueFlag).Equals(Boolean.TrueString));
// The example displays the following output: 
//       False 
//       True 
//       True 
//       True
