The following 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 ) );

   }
}
