Hello Experts,
I am printing a HTML Payment Receipt in C# class file.  The problem is 1.00 is printed as $1, 1:09 is printer as 1.09, 1.10 is printed as 1.1.  I requirement is it should print 2 decimals, no matter what.  For example 1 should print 1.00.  Any idea?  Please try to help.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and help.

Hi  RadhaKrishnaKiJaya;

Use the ToString("C") method on the numeric value to format the value in to a string format with a leading $ and always with two decimal position at the end.

Actually use "C2" on the ToString to make sure it always has two digits after the decimal point.

Examples

// val will contain the string $1.10
string val = (1.10).ToString("C2");
decimal dec = 1.09M;
// val2 will contain the string $1.09
string val2 = dec.ToString("C2");
