BaseNodeToString Method

Nodes must implement a ToString method.

Namespace:  VDS.RDF
Assembly:  dotNetRDF (in dotNetRDF.dll) Version:
public abstract string ToString()

Return Value

Type: String

[Missing <returns> documentation for "M:VDS.RDF.BaseNode.ToString"]



Essential for the implementation of GetHashCode to work correctly, Nodes should generate a String representation that is 'unique' as far as that is possible.

Any two Nodes which match via the Equals method (based on strict RDF Specification Equality) should produce the same String representation since Hash Codes are generated by calling GetHashCode on this String.
