public:
 override System::String ^ ToString();
public override string ToString ();
override this.ToString : unit -> string
Public Overrides Function ToString () As String

Examples

The following example illustrates the ToString method.

using System;

public class Class1
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>[] scores = 
                      { new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Abbey", 92), 
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Dave", 88),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Ed", null),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Jack", 78),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Linda", 99),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Judith", 84), 
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Penelope", 82),
                        new Tuple<string, Nullable<int>>("Sam", 91) }; 
      foreach (var score in scores)
         Console.WriteLine(score.ToString());
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       (Abbey, 92)
//       (Dave, 88)
//       (Ed, )
//       (Jack, 78)
//       (Linda, 99)
//       (Judith, 84)
//       (Penelope, 82)
//       (Sam, 91)

      Dim scores() As Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer)) = 
                      { New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Abbey", 92), 
                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Dave", 88),
                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Ed", Nothing),                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Jack", 78),

                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Judith", 84), 
                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Penelope", 82),
                        New Tuple(Of String, Nullable(Of Integer))("Sam", 91) } 
      For Each score In scores
         Console.WriteLine(score.ToString())
      Next                        
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       (Abbey, 92)
'       (Dave, 88)
'       (Ed, )
'       (Jack, 78)
'       (Linda, 99)
'       (Judith, 84)
'       (Penelope, 82)
'       (Sam, 91)

Remarks

The string returned by this method takes the form (Item1, Item2), where Item1 and Item2 represent the values of the Item1 and Item2 properties. If either property value is null, it is represented as String.Empty.
