String format

Hey,

In my aspx-app I do the following

this.TextBox1.text = object.property.tostring("N")

How can I force that when the value of the property (= Int32) = 0 that it is a space and not 0 in my textbox. I will have an empty textbox.:

Now I do (and I think there is something shorter)

if (object.property == 0)
   this.TextBox1.text = "";
else
   this.TextBox1.text = object.property.tostring();







Thanks
nic

Well, you can use the ternary operator - this is one-line. It does not save much in the current case.

(object.property == 0) ? TextBox1.Text="" : TextBox1.Text = object.property.ToString();

If you have this kind of check in many places, perhaps you can put in a function with the code above and call it wherever needed.

e.g
Use
SetTxt(TextBox1,object.property);

Calls this function
private void SetTxt(System.Windows.Forms.TextBox TextBox1,object prop)
{
   (prop == 0) ? TextBox1.Text="" : TextBox1.Text = prop.ToString();
}
0
