Single.ToString Method in C# | Set – 1

Single.ToString() Method is used to convert the numeric value of the current instance to its equivalent string representation. There are 4 methods in the overload list of this method as follows:

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

Here, we will discuss the first two methods.

            // Declaring and initializing format
            string s = "E04";
  
            // using the method
            string str = value.ToString(s);
  
            // Display the value
            Console.WriteLine("String value is {0}", str);
        }
  
        catch (FormatException e) 
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Format is invalid.");
            Console.Write("Exception Thrown: ");
            Console.Write("{0}", e.GetType(), e.Message);
        }
    }
}
