Examples

The following example iterates an array of Int16 values and displays each of them to the console by calling the Int16.ToString(IFormatProvider) method with different format providers. Because of the simple formatting defined by the default "G" format specifier, the formatted strings produced for each Int16 value are identical regardless of the value of the provider parameter.

short[] numbers = {-23092, 0, 14894, Int16.MaxValue};
CultureInfo[] providers = {new CultureInfo("en-us"), 
                           new CultureInfo("fr-fr"), 
                           new CultureInfo("de-de"), 
                           new CultureInfo("es-es")};
foreach (Int16 int16Value in numbers)
{
   foreach (CultureInfo provider in providers)
   {
      Console.Write("{0, 6} ({1})     ", 
                    int16Value.ToString(provider), 
                    provider.Name);

Remarks

The ToString(IFormatProvider) method formats an Int16 value in the default ("G", or general) format by using the NumberFormatInfo object of a specified culture. If you want to specify a different format or the current culture, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format For culture Use the overload
Default ("G") format Default (current) culture ToString()
A specific format Default (current) culture ToString(String)
A specific format A specific culture ToString(String, IFormatProvider)

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

The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation whose IFormatProvider.GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object. Typically, provider is a NumberFormatInfo object or a CultureInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo object provides culture-specific information about the format of the string returned by this method. If provider is null, this instance is formatted with the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture.

Remarks

The ToString(String, IFormatProvider) method formats an Int16 value in a specified format by using the NumberFormatInfo object of a specified culture. If you want to use default format or culture settings, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format For culture Use the overload
Default ("G") format Default (current) culture ToString()
Default ("G") format A specific culture ToString(IFormatProvider)
A specific format Default (current) culture ToString(String)

The format parameter can be either a standard or a custom numeric format string. All standard numeric format strings other than "R" (or "r") are supported, as are all custom numeric format characters. If format is null or an empty string (""), the string returned by this method is formatted with the general numeric format specifier ("G").

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

The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation. Its GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object that provides culture-specific information about the format of the string that is returned by this method. The object that implements IFormatProvider can be any of the following:

  • A CultureInfo object that represents the culture whose formatting rules are to be used.

  • A NumberFormatInfo object that contains specific numeric formatting information for this value.

  • A custom object that implements IFormatProvider.

If provider is null, or a NumberFormatInfo object cannot be obtained from provider, the return value is formatted with the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture.

Examples

The following example initializes two Int16 values and displays them to the console using each of the supported standard format strings and several custom format strings. The example is run with en-US as the current culture.

Remarks

The ToString(String) method formats an Int16 value in a specified format by using a NumberFormatInfo object that represents the conventions of the current culture. If you want to use the default ("G", or general) format or specify a different culture, use the other overloads of the ToString method, as follows:

To use format For culture Use the overload
Default ("G") format Default (current) culture ToString()
Default ("G") format A specific culture ToString(IFormatProvider)
A specific format A specific culture ToString(String, IFormatProvider)

The format parameter can be either a standard or a custom numeric format string. All standard numeric format strings other than "R" (or "r") are supported, as are all custom numeric format characters. If format is null or an empty string, the return value of this instance is formatted with the general numeric format specifier ("G").

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

The return value of this instance is formatted with the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture.

                   short.MinValue, -16667};
