StringBuilder.Append Method (UInt32)

 

Appends the string representation of a specified 32-bit unsigned integer to this instance.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public StringBuilder Append(
	uint value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

The value to append.

Return Value

Type: System.Text.StringBuilder

A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed MaxCapacity.

The Append(UInt32) method modifies the existing instance of this class; it does not return a new class instance. Because of this, you can call a method or property on the existing reference and you do not have to assign the return value to a StringBuilder object, as the following example illustrates.

System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new 
            System.Text.StringBuilder("The range of a 32-bit unsigned integer: ");
sb.Append(UInt32.MinValue).Append(" to ").Append(UInt32.MaxValue);
Console.WriteLine(sb);
// The example displays the following output:
//       The range of a 32-bit unsigned integer: 0 to 4294967295

The Append(UInt32) calls the UInt32.ToString method to get the string representation of value for the current culture. To control the formatting of value, call the AppendFormat method.

The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.

Notes to Callers:

In the.NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4.5, when you instantiate the StringBuilder object by calling the StringBuilder(Int32, Int32) constructor, both the length and the capacity of the StringBuilder instance can grow beyond the value of its MaxCapacity property. This can occur particularly when you call the Append and AppendFormat methods to append small strings.
