C# | Decimal.ToString Method | Set -1

Decimal.ToString() Method is used to convert the numeric value of the current instance to its equivalent string representation using the specified culture-specific format information. There are 4 methods in the overload list of this method as follows:

  • ToString() Method
  • ToString(IFormatProvider) Method
  • ToString(String, IFormatProvider) Method
  • ToString(String) Method

Here, we will discuss the first two methods.

        decimal value = 7922816251426433759354.39503305M;
  
        // using ToString() method
        string str = value.ToString();
  
        // Display the value
        Console.WriteLine("String value is {0}", str);
    }
}

        get(20);
        get(30);
        get(40);
        get(4294967295);
    }
  
    // defining get() method
    public static void get(decimal value)
    {
  
        // using ToString() method
        string str = value.ToString();
  
        // Display the value
        Console.WriteLine("String value is {0}", str);
    }
}

Output:

Equivalent String values are:
String value is 20
String value is 30
String value is 40
String value is 4294967295

ToString(String) Method

This method is used to convert the numeric value of the current instance to its equivalent string representation, using the specified format.

Syntax: public string ToString (string format);
Here, it takes a standard or custom numeric format string.

        {
            Console.WriteLine("Format is invalid.");
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
}
