The following example is a tip calculator that calculates an 18% tip and uses the WriteLine method to display the amount of the original charge, the amount of the tip, and the total amount. The example is a console application that requires the user to supply the amount of the original charge as a command-line parameter.

using System;

public class TipCalculator {
    private const double tipRate = 0.18;
    public static int Main(string[] args) {
        double billTotal;

            return 1;
        }
        else {
            if (! Double.TryParse(args[0], out billTotal)) {
                Console.WriteLine("usage: TIPCALC total");
                return 1;
            }
            double tip = billTotal * tipRate;
            Console.WriteLine();
            Console.WriteLine("Bill total:\t{0,8:c}", billTotal);

Remarks

This method uses the composite formatting feature of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string. The resulting string is written to the output stream.

The format parameter consists of zero or more runs of text intermixed with zero or more indexed placeholders, called format items, that correspond to an object in the parameter list of this method. The formatting process replaces each format item with the text representation of the value of the corresponding object.

The syntax of a format item is {index[,alignment][:formatString]}, which specifies a mandatory index, the optional length and alignment of the formatted text, and an optional string of format specifier characters that govern how the value of the corresponding object is formatted.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

Security

WriteLine(String)

Writes the specified string value, followed by the current line terminator, to the standard output stream.

public static void WriteLine (string value);
Parameters
value
String

The value to write.

Exceptions

An I/O error occurred.

Examples

The example changes the line terminator from its default value of "\r\n" or vbCrLf to "\r\n\r\n" or vbCrLf + vbCrLf. It then calls the WriteLine() and WriteLine(String) methods to display output to the console.

using namespace System;

{
   array<String^>^ lines = gcnew array<String^> { "This is the first line.", 
                                                  "This is the second line." };
   // Output the lines using the default newline sequence.
   Console::WriteLine("With the default new line characters:");
   Console::WriteLine();
   for each (String^ line in lines)
      Console::WriteLine(line);

   Console::WriteLine();

   // Redefine the newline characters to double space.
   Console::Out->NewLine = "\r\n\r\n";
   // Output the lines using the new newline sequence.

Remarks

This method uses the composite formatting feature of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string. The resulting string is written to the output stream.

The format parameter consists of zero or more runs of text intermixed with zero or more indexed placeholders, called format items, that correspond to an object in the parameter list of this method. The formatting process replaces each format item with the text representation of the value of the corresponding object.

The syntax of a format item is {index[,alignment][:formatString]}, which specifies a mandatory index, the optional length and alignment of the formatted text, and an optional string of format specifier characters that govern how the value of the corresponding object is formatted.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

Notes to Callers

This method is not called by C++ code. The C++ compiler resolves calls to [System.Console.WriteLine](xref:System.Console.WriteLine*) that include a string and a list of four or more object parameters as a call to WriteLine(String, Object, Object, Object, Object). It resolves calls to [System.Console.WriteLine](xref:System.Console.WriteLine*) that include a string and an object array as a call to WriteLine(String, Object).

The format specification in format is invalid.

Examples

The following example calls the WriteLine(String, Object) method to display five randomly generated Boolean values.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Random rnd = new Random();
      // Generate five random Boolean values.
      for (int ctr = 1; ctr <= 5; ctr++) {
         Boolean bln = Convert.ToBoolean(rnd.Next(0, 2));
         Console.WriteLine("True or False: {0}", bln);
      }
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       True or False: False
//       True or False: True
//       True or False: False
//       True or False: False
//       True or False: True
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim rnd As New Random()
      ' Generate five random Boolean values.
      For ctr As Integer = 1 To 5
         Dim bool As Boolean = Convert.ToBoolean(rnd.Next(0, 2))
         Console.WriteLine("True or False: {0}", bool)
      Next
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       True or False: False
'       True or False: True
'       True or False: False
'       True or False: False
'       True or False: True

The following example calls the WriteLine(String, Object) method to display the current date. Note that the format item in the format argument uses the "D" standard date and time format string to display the date in the long date format of the current culture.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Console.WriteLine("Today's date: {0:D}", DateTime.Now);
   }
}
// The example displays output like the following:
//       Today's date: Friday, April 1, 2016
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Console.WriteLine("Today's date: {0:D}", DateTime.Now)
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays output like the following:
'       Today's date: Friday, April 1, 2016

Remarks

The default line terminator is a string whose value is a carriage return followed by a line feed ("\r\n" in C#, or vbCrLf in Visual Basic). You can change the line terminator by setting the TextWriter.NewLine property of the Out property to another string. The example provides an illustration.

Remarks

This method uses the composite formatting feature of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string. The resulting string is written to the output stream.

The format parameter consists of zero or more runs of text intermixed with zero or more indexed placeholders, called format items, that correspond to an object in the parameter list of this method. The formatting process replaces each format item with the text representation of the value of the corresponding object.

The syntax of a format item is {index[,alignment][:formatString]}, which specifies a mandatory index, the optional length and alignment of the formatted text, and an optional string of format specifier characters that govern how the value of the corresponding object is formatted.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

An I/O error occurred.

Examples

The following example uses the WriteLine(Object) method to display each value in an object array to the console.

using namespace System;

void main()
{
   array<Object^>^ values = { true, 12.632, 17908, "stringValue",
                              'a', (Decimal) 16907.32 };
   for each (Object^ value in values)
      Console::WriteLine(value);
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    True
//    12.632
//    17908
//    stringValue
//    a
//    16907.32
using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Object[] values = { true, 12.632, 17908, "stringValue",
                                 'a', 16907.32m };
      foreach (var value in values)
         Console.WriteLine(value);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    True
//    12.632
//    17908
//    stringValue
//    a
//    16907.32
Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      Dim values() As Object = { True, 12.632, 17908, "stringValue",
                                 "a"c, 16907.32d }
      For Each value In values
         Console.WriteLine(value)
      Next                           
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'    True
'    12.632
'    17908
'    stringValue
'    a
'    16907.32

Remarks

If value is null, only the line terminator is written. Otherwise, the ToString method of value is called to produce its string representation, and the resulting string is written to the standard output stream.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

WriteLine(String, Object, Object, Object, Object)

Important

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Writes the text representation of the specified objects and variable-length parameter list, followed by the current line terminator, to the standard output stream using the specified format information.

[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static void WriteLine (string format, object arg0, object arg1, object arg2, object arg3);
Parameters
format
String

A composite format string.

arg0
Object

The first object to write using format.

arg1
Object

The second object to write using format.

arg2
Object

The third object to write using format.

arg3
Object

The fourth object to write using format.

Exceptions

An I/O error occurred.

format is null.

The format specification in format is invalid.

Examples

The following example illustrates the use of variable arguments with the WriteLine(String, Object, Object, Object, Object) method. The method is called with a composite format string and five format items.

using namespace System;

int CountLetters(String^ value);
int CountWhitespace(String^ value);

void main()
{
   String^ value = "This is a test string.";
   
   
   Console::WriteLine("The string '{0}' consists of:" +
                      "{4}{1} characters{4}{2} letters{4}" +
                      "{3} whitespace characters", 
                      value, value->Length, CountLetters(value), 
                      CountWhitespace(value), Environment::NewLine);
}

int CountLetters(String^ value)
{
   int nLetters = 0;
   for each (Char ch in value) {
      if (Char::IsLetter(ch))
         nLetters++;
   }
   return nLetters;
}

int CountWhitespace(String^ value)
{
   int nWhitespace = 0;
   for each (Char ch in value) {
      if (Char::IsWhiteSpace(ch))
         nWhitespace++;
   }
   return nWhitespace;
}
// The example displays the following output:
//    The string 'This is a test string.' consists of:
//    22 characters
//    17 letters
//    4 whitespace characters

Remarks

Note

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is Console.WriteLine(String, Object[]). The C# and Visual Basic compilers automatically resolve a call to this method as a call to Console.WriteLine(String, Object[]).

This method uses the composite formatting feature of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string. The resulting string is written to the output stream.

The format parameter consists of zero or more runs of text intermixed with zero or more indexed placeholders, called format items, that correspond to an object in the parameter list of this method. The formatting process replaces each format item with the text representation of the value of the corresponding object.

The syntax of a format item is {index[,alignment][:formatString]}, which specifies a mandatory index, the optional length and alignment of the formatted text, and an optional string of format specifier characters that govern how the value of the corresponding object is formatted.

The .NET Framework provides extensive formatting support, which is described in greater detail in the following formatting topics.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine method that takes no parameters.

Notes to Callers

This method is marked with the `vararg` keyword, which means that it supports a variable number of parameters. The method can be called from Visual C++, but it cannot be called from C# or Visual Basic code. The C# and Visual Basic compilers resolve calls to WriteLine(String, Object, Object, Object, Object) as calls to WriteLine(String, Object[]).
