# Decimal.Round Method

.NET Framework 1.1

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

```[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function Round( _
ByVal d As Decimal, _
ByVal decimals As Integer _
) As Decimal
[C#]
public static decimal Round(
decimal d,
int decimals
);
[C++]
public: static Decimal Round(
Decimal d,
int decimals
);
[JScript]
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 Type Condition
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

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example rounds several Decimal values to a specified number of decimal places using the Round method.

```[Visual Basic]
' Example of the Decimal.Round method.
Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Module DecimalRoundDemo

Const dataFmt As String = "{0,26}{1,8}{2,26}"

' Display Decimal.Round parameters and the result.
Sub ShowDecimalRound( Argument As Decimal, Digits As Integer )

Dim rounded As Decimal = Decimal.Round( Argument, Digits )

Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, Argument, Digits, rounded )
End Sub

Sub Main( )
Console.WriteLine( "This example of the " & _
"Decimal.Round( Decimal, Integer ) " & vbCrLf & _
"method generates the following output." & vbCrLf )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Argument", "Digits", "Result" )
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "--------", "------", "------" )

' Create pairs of Decimal objects.

ShowDecimalRound( 123.456789D, 8 )
ShowDecimalRound( -123.456D, 0 )

ShowDecimalRound( _
New Decimal( 1230000000, 0, 0, True, 7 ), 11 )
ShowDecimalRound( -9999999999.9999999999D, 9 )
ShowDecimalRound( -9999999999.9999999999D, 10 )
End Sub
End Module
