Use  following code to make it int and then assign to textbox
int n = Convert.ToInt32(value);

Open in new window


You can directly convert it to string by following code.

 decimal value = 3.14m;
string stringValue = ((int)value).ToString();

Open in new window

Try this

  int thisInt;
            Int32.TryParse(tbWorkOrderQty.Text, out thisInt);
            if (dgr.PassQty < thisInt)
            {
                //Your code
            }

How do you assign the value to the textbox ?  (In other words are formatting a string to force it show 3 decimal places in your code ?)

You say textbox.  Do you mean edit OR maskededit box?  A maskededit box has a mask property - which can be set to force decimal places to be shown.

simple...

 tbWorkOrderQty.Text = tbWorkOrderQty.Text.Replace(".000", "");

Simple - wouldn't it be better to make it work correctly at the start rather than patching it.

ps.  If that works then it isn't a problem with a mask in a maskededit.
