JavaScript | toString( ) function

The toString() function in Javascript is used with a number and converts the number to a string. It is used to return a string representing the specified number object.

Syntax:

num.toString(base)

The toString() function is used with a number num as shown in above syntax using the ‘.’ operator. This function will convert num to a string.

Parameters Used: This function accepts a single optional parameter base. This parameter specifies the base in which the integer is represented in string. It is an integer between 2 and 36 which is used to specify the base for representing numeric values.

Return Value: The num.toString() method returns a string representing the specified number object.



Below are some examples to illustrate the working of toString() function in JavaScript:

  1. Converting a number to a string with base 2: To convert a number to a string with base 2 , we will have to call the toString() method by passing 2 as a parameter.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var num=213;
        document.write("Output : " + num.toString(2));          
    </script>

    Output:

    Output:11010101
  2. Converting a number to a string with base 8: To convert a number to a string with base 8, we will have to call the toString() method by passing 8 as a parameter.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var num=213;
        document.write("Output : " + num.toString(8));          
    </script>

    Output:

    Output : 325
  3. Converting a number to a string with base 16: To convert a number to a string with base 16, we will have to call the toString() method by passing 16 as a parameter.

            
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var num=213;
        document.write("Output : " + num.toString(16));          
    </script>

    Output:

    Output : d5

  4. When no parameter is passed: If the toString() method is called without passing any parameter then the number will be converted to string without change in BASE. Below is the program to illustrate this:

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var num=213;
        document.write("Output : " + num.toString());          
    </script>

    Output:

    Output :213
