    Print each object in a list.

    I'm working on making an interactive periodic table, so I have an Element class, that gets created for each new Element. The element class has a ToString() method. I want the ability to give a quick print out of the elements in the currently list, so I attempted to do a foreach loop, but the following code is only printing what the object is, not the ToString() method in the Element class.

    foreach (object o in elementList)
         Console.WriteLine("{0}", o.ToString());
    How can I use the object's ToString() methid, not (I assume) System.Object's?

    Note: This is only my 2nd day in C#, so I apologize if this is a simple question. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Use var instead of object.
    foreach (var o in elementList) { ... }
