Hi All,

I am using C# and have the following within a repeater control:

<%# Eval("Price") %>

The underlying data type is MONEY and the value is currently returning 10.0000. How can I format this like 10.00?

Many thanks,

Rit

You can also use String.Format function:

<%# String.Format("{0:C}",Eval("Price"))%>
