Globally Changing Format Of Negative Currency Numbers In C#?

Oct 22, 2010

We have a large ASP.NET MVC project where all numbers output to the screen are formatted as currency (i.e. ToString("c"). However, negative numbers are showing up with ()'s. For example:

decimal d = -8.88m;
Console.WriteLine(d.ToString("c"));
//outputs $(8.88)

This is a bit annoying to our users, particularly since there are in textboxes. We have a few thousand places where we send currency fields to the screen like this, so we'd love a way to change the formatting globally. Is there one? All the methods I've seen indicate that you have to create a new formatter, similar to this:

string curCulture = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.ToString();
System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo currencyFormat =
new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(curCulture).NumberFormat;
currencyFormat.CurrencyNegativePattern = 1;

We'd prefer not to change all of our ToString("c") methods ... is there a better way? My first thought was to just change our locale to Australia, but realized the date formatting would be screwed up.

Currency Format String Besides "C" / Convert Negative Amounts?

Sep 8, 2010

Is there another currency format string besides "C"? "C" seems to convert negative amounts like you'd see on a bank statement (e.g. $-10.67 shows up as ($10.67)). The guy here at work doesn't like to see .00 at the end of money so in a gridview I wrote for him I was just dropped the last three characters after I converted the values to .ToString("C"), but one negative value in the bunch breaks that logic.

C# - Changing ScriptManager's Attribute Globally?

Mar 30, 2011

In each projects we have several pages which have the following tag

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">

Now we would like to change those to (about 80% of Pages)

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" EnableScriptGlobalization="true" EnableScriptLocalization="true" runat="server">
</asp:ScriptManager>

Is there any way to do that from a single source like Web.config or Global.asax or using any HTTPHandler.

CompareValidator Currency Check Does Not Work With French Formatted Numbers?

Oct 8, 2010

I have a salary TextBox and an associated CompareValidator, which is setup as follows:

<asp:CompareValidator ... Operator="DataTypeCheck" Type="Currency" />

I fill the TextBox with a formatted string out of the database:

txtSalary.Text = myObject.Salary.ToString("N2")

When a user accesses the page using a French culture (such as fr-ca), the ToString method will put 80 000,00 in the textbox, which is fine.However, any number with a space in it causes the validator to fail, which is not fine. Is there any way to make the CompareValidator work properly with non-US formatted numbers?

C# - Using BoundField.DataFormatString To Format Currency Data?

Mar 29, 2011

I have a gridview that I am populating with data for the folks in accounting and they want me to format currency values so that they display without $'s, with commas separating digits and with negative numbers surrounded by ( )

e.g.:

12345.67 = 12,345.67
-12345.67 = (12,345.67)

I have found lots of examples around the interwebs that get me close but there is either no ( ) around negatives or there is a $ included.

VS 2010 - Custom Currency / Decimal Format

Dec 17, 2012

I have searched and found various methods for formatting as a string decimal values but cant fine one which covers all my needs. I have to display a decimal value (a financial money figure) i.e. 2500.75

However I do not require any leading currency symbol such as $ or £ and the main point I am struggling with is that when the value has no value after the decimal do not display zeros. I thought

Code:
.ToString(".##")

was meeting my requirements initiall but then realized if someone put the value 7.4 in it was displayed as 7.4 when it should be displayed as 7.40.

I have also tried

Code:
<%# String.Format("{0:0.##}", DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Amount"))%>

But this seems to have no effect at all.

And in addition

Code:
<%# String.Format("{0:0.C}", DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Amount"))%>

Always displays the two decimals even when zero.
