ToString Method (Int32)

Convert::ToString Method (Int32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to its equivalent string representation.

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

static String^ ToString(
	int value


Type: System::Int32

The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::String
The string representation of value.

This implementation is identical to Int32::ToString(). It formats value by using the formatting conventions of the current thread culture.

The following example compares the ToString(Int32) method with the ToString(UInt16, IFormatProvider) method. It defines a custom NumberFormatInfo object that uses the sting "minus" to represent the negative sign. It converts each element in an integer array to its equivalent string representation using default formatting (the formatting conventions of the current culture) and the custom format provider.
