	bool value


Type: System.Boolean

This implementation is identical to Boolean.ToString. It returns Boolean.TrueString for true values and Boolean.FalseString for false values.

The following example illustrates the conversion of a Boolean to a String, using ToString. It also illustrates that the string returned by the conversion equals either Boolean.TrueString or Boolean.FalseString.

bool falseFlag = false;
bool trueFlag = true;

// The example displays the following output:
//       False
//       True
//       True
//       True
