Hi,

I have problems with formatting values that dont need to be precised. For instance, my grid can sometimes contains data that i want to show with 4 decimal digits (ex: 45.6785). For this, I use the formatting:  Column.DataFormatString = "{0:N4}". The problem is when this same grid displays number less precise (ex: 45.0). Users are complaining that they see too much digits for nothing: (ex: 45.0000). Is there a way to force the formatting to only apply when really needed? Like for instance specifying a maximum digit count so the formatting only apply when it needs to?

Thanks in advance,


Martin

Are you looking to round, or truncate? If round, which style of rounding, ToEven or FromZero?
