Hi,
I have the below code.

How do I format the p.value so its stays a double and can be sorted in my listview but shows:

$#,##.##

Thanks
T
Function getPrice(ByVal query As XElement, ByVal vehicleValue As String) As Double
 
    			Dim priceResult = From p In query...<price> _
                      			Where p.@vehicle = vehicleValue _
                      			Select Double.Parse(p.Value)
 
    			Return priceResult.FirstOrDefault()
		End Function

If you format a number, the results will always be a String.

tubbs is right. Sorting numbers continues to be harder than it should be. Take a look at this article on ICompare.

Tania_Farmer,

Although the displayed number will need to be a string, you could always store the "raw" number in the Tag property of the ListViewItem.
