When my data source has a 0.00 in it and I am using dataFormatString="{0:$###,###.##}" in my RadGrid, it is stripping out the zeros and also showing more than two decimal places. Does someone know how to effective show the zeros or alternatively how to use something perhaps besides a GridBoundColumn and still be able to aggregate and filter columns.

I'm using a GridNumericColumn and $0.00 displays correctly, filtering works, and I have an aggregate sum in the footer which displays fine too.

Try this:

<telerik:GridNumericColumn DataField="LoanAmount" DataType="System.Decimal" NumericType="Currency"  
      HeaderText="Loan Amount" SortExpression="LoanAmount" UniqueName="LoanAmount"  
      Aggregate="Sum" FooterAggregateFormatString="{0:C}"
</telerik:GridNumericColumn>

Hello Tina,

Please test the following code:
vb
RadAjaxManager1.Alert(String.Format("{0:$###,##0.00}"CType(0.0, Decimal))) 

c#
RadAjaxManager1.Alert(String.Format("{0:$###,##0.00}", (decimal)0.0)); 

aspx
<telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server" /> 

I hope this helps.

Hey Steve - this works perfectly for everything except bringing in my zeros. The decimal places are now all displaying properly and my data is aggregates as expected.

The column in my table is of data type money. Would that make a difference?

Thanks so much for your help!

OK - it was a combination of these two answers that actually worked for me:

 

 

<telerik:GridNumericColumn dataFormatString="{0:$###,##0.00}" DataField="BilledAmt" DataType="System.Decimal" NumericType="Currency" HeaderText="BilledAmt" SortExpression="BilledAmt" UniqueName="BilledAmt" Aggregate="Sum" FooterAggregateFormatString="{0:C}">

 

 

 

</telerik:GridNumericColumn>

My database datatype is also money. I don't need the extra dataFormatString="{0:$###,##0.00}" to have zero in the money field display as $0.00 - it just displays that way. Weird, huh?

btw: doesn't a dataFormatString="{0:C}" work to display $0.00 and always remove leading zeros?

You can find more information about the DataFormatString property in MSDN:
