Converting Exponents to a Decimal, best practices.

Hi please review my debug screen shot and advise on best practice to convert the exponent illustrated to a decimal in the proper format.  My code works on numbers without exponents but as seen in the illustration exponents are a item the conversion should be equipped to handle.

Thanks for the suggestions.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe I'm missing something, but the "exponent" you are seeing is just the way the debugger is displaying the data for the quick view. The X and Y values just below the quick view display as per your expectation.

OK, there are no any exponents here!
Letter 'E' you see just denotes a power of 10, in your case '-14'.
In other words, the first number in IPoint.Position is :
-2.30926389122033 multiplied by 10 power (-14) = 10^-14
Really, 10^-14 = 0.00000000000001

If you multiply you have:
-0.0000000000000230926389122033

Really, this number is rounded (just to fit some predefined space).
Below we may see this number not rounded (or rounded with higher precision):
-0.000000000000023092638912203256
