StringBuilder.Append Method (SByte)


Appends the string representation of a specified 8-bit signed integer to this instance.

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

public StringBuilder Append(
	sbyte value


Type: System.SByte

The value to append.

Return Value

Type: System.Text.StringBuilder

A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

Exception Condition

Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed MaxCapacity.

The Append(SByte) method modifies the existing instance of this class; it does not return a new class instance. Because of this, you can call a method or property on the existing reference and you do not have to assign the return value to a StringBuilder object, as the following example illustrates.

System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new 
            System.Text.StringBuilder("The range of an 8-bit signed integer: ");
sb.Append(SByte.MinValue).Append(" to ").Append(SByte.MaxValue);
// The example displays the following output:
//       The range of an 8-bit unsigned integer: -128 to 127 

The Append(SByte) method calls the SByte.ToString(IFormatProvider) method to get the string representation of value for the current culture. To control the formatting of value, call the AppendFormat method.

The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.

Notes to Callers:

In the.NET Framework 4 and the .NET Framework 4.5, when you instantiate the StringBuilder object by calling the StringBuilder(Int32, Int32) constructor, both the length and the capacity of the StringBuilder instance can grow beyond the value of its MaxCapacity property. This can occur particularly when you call the Append and AppendFormat methods to append small strings.
