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.

Something like this should do it...

lblP2.setText(String.format("$%.02f", pay2));

Or perhaps this may be more correct (ie. might handle different locales more correctly), but may be overkill for what you want...

lblP2.setText(NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance().format(pay2));
