I'd like to display a numer in the format XXX.XX, but also trim off any trailing zeros that exist in the remaining 2 decimal places.

Can anyone tell me the best way to display this number?  I'm going to use the code in a function, that will accept a double value as the input.

i.e.
33.333333  --->  33.33
25.50         --->  25.5
50             --->   50

Hi Rouchie,

I knew it would be really simple but couldn't find any information online to help me solve it!

Thanks Tim.
