This is a two part question, so I will post the first one...
I have an output where the number is formatted in a currency, and when the value is negative, parenthesis are placed around the asp label that displays the value of the text. Here is the label tag :
<asp:label id="lblIncreaseInAmountContributingTo401k" runat="server"/>
And here is the code where it is called, computed, and formated, I have broken up the code and listed it in order, as I am not sure how far back it is needed to go to aquire the desired result, but this should be enough :
lblIncreaseInAmountContributingTo401k.text = FormatCurrency(Cdbl(hiddenIncreaseInAmountContributingTo401k.text))
<asp:label id="hiddenIncreaseInAmountContributingTo401k" runat="server"/>
hiddenIncreaseInAmountContributingTo401k.text = Cdbl(hiddenFutureContributionAmount.text) - Cdbl(hiddenCurrentContributionAmount.text)
I am a beginner trying to learn, so thank you for your patience as I learn how to post in the most effective way
