The following code example prints a value using different NumberNegativePattern patterns.

 using System;
 using System.Globalization;
 class SamplesNumberFormatInfo  {
 
    public static void Main()  {
 
       // Creates a new NumberFormatinfo.
       NumberFormatInfo myNfi = new NumberFormatInfo();

       // Takes a negative value.
       Int64 myInt = -1234;

       // Displays the value with default formatting.
       Console.WriteLine( "Default  \t:\t{0}", myInt.ToString( "N", myNfi ) );

       // Displays the value with other patterns.
       for ( int i = 0; i <= 4; i++ )  {
          myNfi.NumberNegativePattern = i;
          Console.WriteLine( "Pattern {0}\t:\t{1}", myNfi.NumberNegativePattern, myInt.ToString( "N", myNfi ) );
       }
    }
 }
 /*
