What are proper format strings for String.format, Number.format, etc?

Hi guys, I just started using the client side version of the Ajax framework. Everything is working out so far, except that I can't seem to be able to format any strings of numbers the way I want. Wheather I use the String.format or Number.format functions, I just keep getting Sys.FormatException errors. What are the proper format strings? I tried the relevant ones that I use in C#, but it just doesn't work.

Help would be much appreciated!

I believe D, C, N, and P are the only valid ones for numbers (client side).

Format bug in String.Format() method?
I think I found a bug."{0:#0.00}" supposed to yeild 2 decimal places always right?This doesn't work (at lease not with the decimal type).  I tried multiple cases and it just doesn't do anything to the format.It's weird.  I tried "{0:#,##0.00}" and it works for ONLY values > 1000.  Anything < 1000, it doesn't do any formating whatsoever. Anyone else experience this?

what is the difference bettween string.Format("{0:#.##}", and string.Format("{0:0.00}"
they both seem to do the same thing, what is the difference functionality that # versus 0  ?    string.Format("{0:#.##}", mydecimal); string.Format("{0:0.00}", mydecimal); Look here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8.aspx Hope it helps Hi, As far as I know, they both are different. 0.00 can remain the position all the time. For example, decimal is 0.1 and then it will return to you with 0.10 by 0.00 format. With #.##, it will cut the unnecessary position in the decimal. For example, decimal is 0.1 and then i...

Input string was not in a correct format for Formatted Currency
Ok, when I bind a textbox in my FormView I'm changing the format to currency (<%# Bind("TotalValue","{0:c}") %>).  When I click Update I get "Input string was not in a correct format" since TotalValue is Int32 data type. Shouldn't it convert it back to Int32 when it updates the db?  Or do I have to do it manually, and if so how? Money should not be int in the database because you need decimal places, so you use money, smallmoney, decimal and numeric for money.  Try the link below for currency related formatting in .NET.  Hope this helps.http://msdn.micro...
