Examples

The following example illustrates the ToString method.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      var tuple1Double = Tuple.Create(3.456e-18);
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Double);
      
      var tuple1String = Tuple.Create("Australia");
      DisplayTuple(tuple1String);
      
      var tuple1Bool = Tuple.Create(true);
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Bool);
      
      var tuple1Char = Tuple.Create('a');
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Char);
   }

   private static void DisplayTuple(object obj)
   {
      Console.WriteLine(obj.ToString());
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       (3.456E-18)
//       (Australia)
//       (True)
//       (a)
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim tuple1Double = Tuple.Create(3.456e-18)
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Double)
      
      Dim tuple1String = Tuple.Create("Australia")
      DisplayTuple(tuple1String)
      
      Dim tuple1Bool = Tuple.Create(True)
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Bool)
      
      Dim tuple1Char = Tuple.Create("a"c)
      DisplayTuple(tuple1Char)
   End Sub
   
   Private Sub DisplayTuple(obj As Object)
      Console.WriteLine(obj.ToString())
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       (3.456E-18)
'       (Australia)
'       (True)
'       (a)

Remarks

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1), where Item1 represents the value of the Item1 property. If the value of Item1 is null, it is represented as String.Empty.
