Examples of every type of formatting.  do {0:0.000} for yours.
// just two decimal places
String.Format("{0:0.00}", 123.4567);      // "123.46"
String.Format("{0:0.00}", 123.4);         // "123.40"
String.Format("{0:0.00}", 123.0);         // "123.00"

double value;

value = 123;
Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("00000"));
// Displays 00123

value = 1.2;
Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("0.00", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
// Displays 1.20
Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("00.00", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture));
// Displays 01.20
Console.WriteLine(value.ToString("00.00", 
                  CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("da-DK")));
// Displays 01,20
