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

override ToString : unit -> string

Return Value

Type: System.String

The current string.

The following example demonstrates the ToString method.Note that the example does not explicitly call the ToString method. Instead, the method is called implicitly by the composite formatting feature.
