Error while converting into string

Way to deal with null exception while retrieving the value from grid view.

string str=dgvissue_master.Rows[i].Cells[0].Value.tostring();

where dgvissue_maste=Datagridview

Above Code work fine till threre is data in the cell.But it will fire an error when the data in the cell is empty. Now,How to deal with such kind of error?
Generally .Tostring does't handle the null exception at runtime.
So, in such case we have to use Convert.Tostring for handling of null exception.

string str=convert.tostring(dgvissue_master.Rows[i].Cells[0].Value);

Hope this will help you.

obj.ToString() cant holds NULL value
where as Convert.ToString() Can allow NULL values

The basic difference between them is “Convert" function handles NULLS while
“ToString()" does not it will throw a NULL reference exception error. So as a good coding
practice using “convert" is always safe.

string value=GridView1.Rows[i].cells[0].value.ToString();
//string value=Convert.ToString(GridView1.Rows[i].cells[0].value);
