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

public static string ToString(
	float value


Type: System.Single
A single-precision floating point number.

Return Value

Type: System.String

This implementation is identical to Single.ToString.

The following code sample illustrates the conversion of a Single to a String, using ToString.

public void ConvertStringFloat(string stringVal)
   float floatVal = 0;

      floatVal = System.Convert.ToSingle(stringVal);
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "The string as a float is {0}.", floatVal) + "\n";
   catch (System.OverflowException)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "The conversion from string-to-float overflowed.") + "\n";
   catch (System.FormatException)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "The string is not formatted as a float.") + "\n";
   catch (System.ArgumentNullException)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
         "The string is null.") + "\n";

   // Float to string conversion will not overflow.
   stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(floatVal);
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format(
      "The float as a string is {0}.", stringVal) + "\n";
