Hi

I have a textbox that gets assigned qty values but it appears as e.g. 126.000 and would like it to be 126.

any ideas?

Thanks

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.
