Format numbers in formview so that decimal points line up

How do I format the numbers in a FormView control (and presumabaly in the other databound view controls) so that the decimal points line up? I'm displaying data using asp:label controls and for formatting I've used the curly bracket format with Eval:

Text='<%# Eval("ClearedBalance", "{0:n2}") %>'

Although this nicely presents numbers with a decimal point and two digits after the decimal point, everything is left justified, which means the decimal points don't line up if there are a mix of numbers less than ten, over ten, over a hundred etc. I can't find a way of right justifying the data in a label.

What I usually do is add a regular html table to the formview and then move all of my labels and text boxes into the table cells.  I then use the alignment properties of the columns and rows to left or right justify my controls.  Provided that you have your label widths set to 0 or blank the labels should auto-grow to fit the text/numbers displayed.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't; you're right.

Hi to all VB.NET function Hex() converts numbers to hexadecimal strings, is there any reverse function that converts hexadecimals back to numbers?? Thanks, Hooker Hi, how are you?

How to format numbers in FormView
Hi all.. In a DataGridView a DataFormatString property exists so that numbers can be formatted (for example, thousand and decimal separators). How can it be done in FormView? If I have an Edit Item Template inside a FormView, I placed some TextBoxes that are bound to numeric data columns. By default, if the number returned from the database doesn't have decimals (i.e. it's an integer), the number is displayed as "n.0000". I need to customize the numeric format. Thanks Jaime You can write a helper function to do the conversion in the code behind.  Then bind it to the textbox's...
