MFC: formatting numeric field

Hello,

Is there any standar function availavle in MFC that will add a comma (',')
to a numeric value (say monetary) to make the field easier to read.

for e.g.

   300.00 converted to 300.00 (no change)
  3000.00 -----> 3,000.00
 30000.00 -----> 30,000.00
300000.00 -----> 300,000.00


The environment is VC++ 6.0 and the monetary value is being displayed in edit box.

Thanks

Best to use GetNumberFormatEx. You will have to format num to string with sprintf first, then put this into GetNumberFormatEx or GetNumberFormat.
