The toString() method 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() method is used with a number num as shown in above syntax using the ‘.’ operator. This method will convert num to a string. Parameters Used: This method accepts a single optional parameter base. This parameter specifies the base in which the integer is represented in the 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() method 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. 

html




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


  1. Output:
Output:11010101
  1. 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. 

html




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


  1. Output:
Output : 325
  1. 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. 

html




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


  1. Output:
Output : d5
  1.  
  2. 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: 

html




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


  1. Output:
Output :213
