C# | Convert.ToBoolean(String, IFormatProvider) Method

This method is used to convert the specified string representation of a logical value to its Boolean equivalent, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

Syntax:

public static bool ToBoolean (string value, IFormatProvider provider);

Parameters:

  • value: It is a string that contains the value of either TrueString or FalseString.
  • provider: It is an object that supplies culture-specific formatting information. This parameter is ignored.

Return Value: This method returns true if value equals TrueString, or false if value equals FalseString or null.

Exceptions: This method will throw FormatException if the value is not equal to TrueString or FalseString.

            get(values[j], cultures);
        }
    }
  
    catch (FormatException e) {
  
        Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
        Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
    }
}
  
// Defining get() method
public static void get(string s, CultureInfo cultures)
{
  
    // converting string to specified bool
    bool val = Convert.ToBoolean(s, cultures);
  
    // display the converted string
    Console.Write(" {0}, ", val);
}
}
