precision issue in C#.NET double value.

Hi there;

I have an issue in my C#.NET project.

I have a variable having a double value and when I debug, I can see it preserves its double value, but in console, it gives the trimmed value.

This only happens for e.g. 1.0, not 1.2 or so.

The output in the console for 1.0 is 1 where as for others like 1.2, the output is still 1.2.

The line I am using is:
 Console.WriteLine(doubleval.ToString());

So, what am i missing?

Regards.

Use this

Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:N2}",doubleval));

Use decimal format: Below line will display double with two decimals.
1.0 will be 1.00
1.2 will be 1.20
.3 will be 0.30

Console.WriteLine(doubleval.ToString("###0.00"));

you can change format as per your requirement.

Hi there;

It seems pretty trivial but the problem persists:

Assume the followings are double type values:
I want to see exactly the same values written here, no additional precision, no trimming or rounding.

0.9
5.1
0.17
0.0
0.15
0.15
0.9
1.1
0.92 -> while printing, I failed in this, it simply rounds to 0.9 exactly.
0.5
0.2
1.0
1.2

Your current recommendations are not completely work in every above case.

What to do? I am needless to say using Console.WriteLine(..
