string text = count.ToString(); (More...)

How do I call a member method and pass a primitive type (Value Type) by reference?

Use the ref keyword when declaring the parameter of the method, for example:

public bool GetValue( ref int returnValue );

This will pass the numeric by reference.You can modify the value of returnValue within the body of GetValue and it will persist when the method call returns. (More...)

Why do I get an error (CS1006) when trying to declare a method without specifying a return type?

If you leave off the return type on a method declaration, the compiler thinks you are trying to declare a constructor. So if you are trying to declare a method that returns nothing, use void. The following is an example: // This results in a CS1006 error public static staticMethod (mainStatic obj) // This will work as wanted public static void staticMethod (mainStatic obj) (More...)

What is the difference between Convert.toString and .toString()

Just to give an understanding of what the above question means see the below code :-

int val = 0;

We can convert the integer "val" using "val.ToString()" or "Convert.ToString" so what's the difference.

The basic difference between them is "Convert" function handles NULLS while "val.ToString()"
does not.

It will throw a NULL reference exception error. So as good coding practice using "Convert" is always safe. (More...)

What is the difference between Convert.ToString() and .ToString() method.

Have a look at the following program and its output

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ExampleOfString
class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
String UserName = null ;
//Below statement WILL THROW an exception as .ToString() does not handles null values
String strUserId = UserName.ToString();
catch (NullReferenceException ex)
Console.WriteLine("Error:{0}", ex.Message);

//Below statement WILL NOT THROW an exception as convert.tostring handles implicitly
String strUserId = Convert.ToString(UserName);
Console.WriteLine("UserName:{0}", strUserId);
catch (NullReferenceException ex)
Console.WriteLine("Error:{0}", ex.Message);

Below is the output of the console application

Error:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Press any key to continue . . .
