What is the difference between Convert.toString and .toString() method ?

Just to give an understanding of what the above question means seethe below code.

 int i =0;

MessageBox.Show(i.ToString());

 MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToString(i));



We can convert the integer "i" using "i.ToString()" or "Convert.ToString" so what’s the difference.
The basic difference between them is "Convert" function handles NULLS while "i.ToString()" does not it will throw a NULL reference exception error. So as good coding practice using "convert" is always safe.
