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

public 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().

The following example converts each element in an integer array to its equivalent string representation.

// Create a NumberFormatInfo object and set several of its
// properties that control default integer formatting.
System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo provider = new System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo();
provider.NegativeSign = "minus ";

int[] values = { -20, 0, 100 };

foreach (int value in values)
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-5}  -->  {1,8}", 
                     value, Convert.ToString(value, provider));
// The example displays the following output:
//       -20    -->  minus 20
//       0      -->         0
//       100    -->       100
