hello,

In a code I'm dealing with a property defined in a class:

public decimal UnitPriceExclTax { get; set; }

I need to write this out into a CSV file however, it shows 4 fraction digits after floating point.

How can I limit or mask it such it only show 2 digits. Rather $30.0000 it should be $30.00 ?

I'm writing it into a CSV file as following:




Thanks,
ak








 
sb.Append(String.Format("\"{0}\"", orderObj.UnitPriceExclTax));

This should work >>

sb.Append(String.Format("\"{0}\"", orderObj.UnitPriceExclTax.ToString("N2")));

Or, if you actually need it as a currency:
sb.Append(string.Format("\"{0:C2}\"", orderObj.UnitPriceExclTax));
