WriteLine Method (Int32)

Console::WriteLine Method (Int32)


Writes the text representation of the specified 32-bit signed integer value, followed by the current line terminator, to the standard output stream.

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

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction::LinkDemand, UI = true)]
static void WriteLine(
	int value


Type: System::Int32

The value to write.

Exception Condition

An I/O error occurred.

The text representation of value is produced by calling the Int32::ToString method.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

The following example is a tip calculator that calculates an 18% tip and uses the WriteLine method to display the amount of the original charge, the amount of the tip, and the total amount. The example is a console application that requires the user to supply the amount of the original charge as a command-line parameter.

using namespace System;

int main()
   array<String^>^args = Environment::GetCommandLineArgs();
   const double tipRate = 0.18;
   double billTotal;
   if ( args->Length != 2 )
      Console::WriteLine( "usage: TIPCALC total" );
      return 1;
      if (! Double::TryParse(args[1], billTotal)) {
         Console::WriteLine( "usage: TIPCALC total" );
         return 1;

      double tip = billTotal * tipRate;
      Console::WriteLine( "Bill total:\t{0,8:c}", billTotal );
      Console::WriteLine( "Tip total/rate:\t{0,8:c} ({1:p1})", tip, tipRate );
      Console::WriteLine( ((String^)"")->PadRight( 24, '-' ) );
      Console::WriteLine( "Grand total:\t{0,8:c}", billTotal + tip );
      return 0;

Example Output:
>tipcalc 52.23

Bill total:       $52.23
Tip total/rate:    $9.40 (18.0 %)
Grand total:      $61.63
