How to round double to four decimal places

Dear all,

I'm looking to round the results of calculations to four decimal places, I'm not sure how to set the number of decimal places in using Math.Round.


Thanks

Perhaps this:

double rounded = Math.round(original*10000.0) / 10000.0 ;

What Doug has posted above is correct. However, if you real question is regarding how do you round a double for presentation to the user/writing to some output, then more likely you are concerned with how to convert a double to a String while limiting the number of decimal places presented. This would be accomplished using features of the NumberFormat / DecimalFormat classes. If this is indeed what you are after and need further help with those classes, let us know.
