ToString  
Method  
Converts the Object contents into a string representation

CF1.  Function ToString : String;
CF : Methods with this mark are Compact Framework Compatible
Description
Converts the current salient Object contents into a formatted string.
 
This is a very important method - allowing all classes to show themselves as it were.
 
For the base Object type, there are no real contents, so the class name itself is used as the string. For your classes, you should define a meaningful ToString implementation. For example, the Exception class displays the trace of exceptions it contains.

  Console.WriteLine('MyObj.ToString = ' + MyObj.ToString);

  MyStr := 'Hello World';

  Console.WriteLine('MyStr.ToString = ' + MyStr.ToString);
