In ASP.NET 2.0 with C# I have a repeater that shows a price and I want to show it without any digit after the decimal point.
this is how I show it  inside the repeater:
<%# Eval("Price")%>
I thought of writing it like:
<%# Eval("Price","{0:N0}")%>
but it doesn't work.
How shall I write it?

This would not remove trailing zeros
<%# Eval("Price","{0:N0}")%>

if currency is recqired then use
<%# Eval("Price","{0:c}")%>

You may use math.ceil or math.round to remove trialing zeros
or you can parse it to int using Javascript function?
int.Parse(<%# Eval("Price","{0:c}")%>)

sorry not int.parse
in js it should be pareint like this

parseint( <%# Eval("Price","{0:c}")%> )


'var a = parseInt(num);
'var b = parseFloat(num);

Hi,
Sorry but the only thing that worked for me in to write in the code behind the following:
            Label lblMin = (Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblMinPrice");
            string minpStr = String.Format("{0:C}", decimal.Parse(lblMin.Text));
            lblMin.Text = minpStr.ToString();
