StringBuilder.Append Method (Int16)

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Appends the string representation of a specified 16-bit signed integer to the end of this instance.

Namespace: System.Text
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Function Append ( _
    value As Short _
) As StringBuilder
public StringBuilder Append(
    short value
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System.Text..::.StringBuilder
A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed its maximum capacity.

Remarks

The Append method modifies the existing instance of this class; it does not return a new class instance. Because of this, you can call a method or property on the existing reference and you do not have to assign the return value to a StringBuilder object, as the following example illustrates.

Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder("The range of a 16-bit integer: ")
sb.Append(Int16.MinValue).Append(" to ").Append(Int16.MaxValue)
outputBlock.Text += sb.ToString() + Environment.NewLine
' The example displays the following output:
'       The range of a 16-bit integer: -32768 to 32767
System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new 
       System.Text.StringBuilder("The range of a 16-bit integer: ");
sb.Append(Int16.MinValue).Append(" to ").Append(Int16.MaxValue);
outputBlock.Text += sb + Environment.NewLine;
// The example displays the following output:
//       The range of a 16-bit integer: -32768 to 32767

The Append method calls the Int16..::.ToString(IFormatProvider) method to get the string representation of value for the current culture. To control the formatting of value, call the AppendFormat method.

The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.
