Numeric Format ASP.NET

Here are some numeric formats (number formatting) in ASP.NET :

using System;
class TestDefaultFormats {
  static void Main( ) {
    int i = 654321;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C}", i); // $654,321.00
    Console.WriteLine("{0:D}", i); // 654321
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E}", i); // 6.543210E+005
    Console.WriteLine("{0:F}", i); // 654321.00
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G}", i); // 654321
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N}", i); // 654,321.00
    Console.WriteLine("{0:X}", i); // 9FBF1
    Console.WriteLine("{0:x}", i); // 9fbf1
  }
}

This example uses numeric format specifiers with precision specifiers on a variety of int values:

using System;
class TestIntegerFormats {
  static void Main( ) {
    int i = 123;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", i); // $123.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:D6}", i); // 000123
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", i); // 1.230000E+002
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", i); // 123
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", i); // 123.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:X6}", i); // 00007B
    i = -123;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", i); // ($123.000000)
    Console.WriteLine("{0:D6}", i); // -000123
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", i); // -1.230000E+002
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", i); // -123
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", i); // -123.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:X6}", i); // FFFF85
    i = 0;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", i); // $0.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:D6}", i); // 000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", i); // 0.000000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", i); // 0
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", i); // 0.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:X6}", i); // 000000
  }
}

This example uses numeric format specifiers with precision specifiers on a variety of double values:

using System;
class TestDoubleFormats {
  static void Main( ) {
    double d = 1.23;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // $1.230000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // 1.230000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // 1.23
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // 1.230000
    d = -1.23;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // ($1.230000)
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // -1.230000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // -1.23
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // -1.230000
    d = 0;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // $0.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // 0.000000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // 0
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // 0.000000
  }
}

using System;
class TestDoubleFormats {
  static void Main( ) {
    double d = 1.23;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // $1.230000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // 1.230000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // 1.23
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // 1.230000
    d = -1.23;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // ($1.230000)
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // -1.230000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // -1.23
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // -1.230000
    d = 0;
    Console.WriteLine("{0:C6}", d); // $0.000000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:E6}", d); // 0.000000E+000
    Console.WriteLine("{0:G6}", d); // 0
    Console.WriteLine("{0:N6}", d); // 0.000000
  }
}

The above simplified function comes in handy when you need it.
