Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The CurrencyDecimalDigits property is used with the "C" standard format string without a precision specifier in numeric formatting operations. It defines the number of fractional digits that appear after the decimal point. For more information, see Standard Numeric Format Strings.

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

using System;
using System.Globalization;

class NumberFormatInfoSample {

   public static void Main() {

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

      // Displays a negative value with the default number of decimal digits (2).
      Int64 myInt = -1234;
      Console.WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "C", nfi ) );

      // Displays the same value with four decimal digits.
      nfi.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 4;
      Console.WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "C", nfi ) );

   }
}
