# Decimal.Round Method (Decimal, Int32)

.NET Framework 2.0

Rounds a Decimal value to a specified number of decimal places.

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

## Syntax

```public:
static Decimal Round (
Decimal d,
int decimals
)
```
```public static Decimal Round (
Decimal d,
int decimals
)
```
```public static function Round (
d : decimal,
decimals : int
) : decimal
```

#### Parameters

d

A Decimal value to round.

decimals

A value from 0 to 28 that specifies the number of decimal places to round to.

#### Return Value

The Decimal number equivalent to d rounded to decimals number of decimal places.

## Exceptions

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

decimals is not a value from 0 to 28.

## Remarks

When d is exactly halfway between two rounded values, the result is the rounded value that has an even digit in the far right decimal position. For example, when rounded to two decimals, the value 2.345 becomes 2.34 and the value 2.355 becomes 2.36. This process is known as rounding toward even, or rounding to nearest.

## Example

The following code example rounds several Decimal values to a specified number of decimal places using the Round method.

```// Example of the Decimal::Round method.
using namespace System;
#define dataFmt "{0,26}{1,8}{2,26}"

// Display Decimal::Round parameters and the result.
void ShowDecimalRound( Decimal Argument, int Digits )
{
Decimal rounded = Decimal::Round( Argument, Digits );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, Argument, Digits, rounded );
}

int main()
{
Console::WriteLine( "This example of the "
"Decimal::Round( Decimal, Integer ) \n"
"method generates the following output.\n" );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "Argument", "Digits", "Result" );
Console::WriteLine( dataFmt, "--------", "------", "------" );

// Create pairs of Decimal objects.
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "1.45" ), 1 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "1.55" ), 1 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "123.456789" ), 4 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "123.456789" ), 6 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "123.456789" ), 8 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "-123.456" ), 0 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal(1230000000,0,0,true,7), 3 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal(1230000000,0,0,true,7), 11 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "-9999999999.9999999999" ), 9 );
ShowDecimalRound( Decimal::Parse( "-9999999999.9999999999" ), 10 );
}
