Hello,
I am converting a datagridview value to currency

    If IsDBNull(sender.Rows(intRowIndex).Cells("Deposite").Value) = False Then
                str_Dep = CDbl(sender.Rows(intRowIndex).Cells("Deposite").Value)
            End If

Open in new window

but,the problem with the above code is that it converts
21.10 to 21.1 whereas the requirement is to convert it to 21.10
Any suggestions are welcome.

Cheers

not sure if vb has the same string function this would be for c#
str_Dep = String.Format("{0:c}", CDbl(sender.Rows(intRowIndex).Cells("Deposite").Value))

It puts the £ sign in front of the string because c is the currency specifier, if you do not want the £ sign in front then you should use N or G instead:
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Dim value As Decimal = 21.2

		Console.WriteLine("{1,15}{0,5}{2,15}{0,5}{3,15}", " ", "Currency", "General", "Numeric")
		Console.WriteLine("{1,15}{0,5}{1,15}{0,5}{1,15}", " ", New String("_", 15))
		Console.WriteLine("{1,15:C}{0,5}{1,15:G}{0,5}{1,15:N}", " ", value)
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Open in new window
