StringConcat Method
 

Creates the string representation of a specified object.

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

Syntax
public static string Concat(
	object arg0
)
public:
static String^ Concat(
	Object^ arg0
)
static member Concat : 
        arg0:Object -> string
Public Shared Function Concat (
	arg0 As Object
) As String

Parameters

arg0
Type:

The object to represent, or null.

Return Value

Type:

The string representation of the value of arg0, or StringEmpty if arg0 is null.

Remarks

The Concat method represents arg0 as a string by calling its parameterless ToString method.

Examples

The following example demonstrates the Concat method.

using System;

class stringConcat5 {
    public static void Main() {
    int i = -123;
    Object o = i;
    Object[] objs = new Object[] {-123, -456, -789};

    Console.WriteLine("Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:");
    Console.WriteLine("1) {0}", String.Concat(o));
    Console.WriteLine("2) {0}", String.Concat(o, o));
    Console.WriteLine("3) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o));

    Console.WriteLine("\nConcatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:");
    Console.WriteLine("4) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o, o));
    Console.WriteLine("5) {0}", String.Concat(o, o, o, o, o));

    Console.WriteLine("\nConcatenate a 3-element object array:");
    Console.WriteLine("6) {0}", String.Concat(objs));
    }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:
//    1) -123
//    2) -123-123
//    3) -123-123-123
//    
//    Concatenate 4 objects and a variable length parameter list:
//    4) -123-123-123-123
//    5) -123-123-123-123-123
//    
//    Concatenate a 3-element object array:
//    6) -123-456-789

      Dim objs() As [Object] = {-123, -456, -789}

      Console.WriteLine("Concatenate 1, 2, and 3 objects:")
      Console.WriteLine("1) {0}", [String].Concat(o))
      Console.WriteLine("2) {0}", [String].Concat(o, o))
      Console.WriteLine("3) {0}", [String].Concat(o, o, o))
