Silverlight

Updated: October 2010

Gets or sets the number of decimal places to use in currency values.

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

## Syntax

```public int CurrencyDecimalDigits { get; set; }
```

#### Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of decimal places to use in currency values. The default for InvariantInfo is 2.

## Exceptions

## Examples

The following example demonstrates the effect of changing the CurrencyDecimalDigits property.

```
using System;
using System.Globalization;

class Example
{

public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
{

// Gets a NumberFormatInfo associated with the en-US culture.
NumberFormatInfo nfi = new CultureInfo("en-US").NumberFormat;

// Displays a negative value with the default number of decimal digits (2).
Int64 myInt = -1234;
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(myInt.ToString("C", nfi)) + "\n";

// Displays the same value with four decimal digits.
nfi.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 4;
outputBlock.Text += String.Format(myInt.ToString("C", nfi)) + "\n";

}
}

/*
This code produces the following output.
