Parsing percentage % to double

I use this code, but I get exception:

String num = "29%";
System.Globaliz ation.NumberFor matInfo ni = new
System.Globaliz ation.NumberFor matInfo(); ni.PercentSymbo l = "%";
double nums = double.Parse(nu m, System.Globaliz ation.NumberSty les.Any, ni);

Is there a way to parse the percent value by using IFormatProvider ?

How about:

String num = "29%";
double nums = double.Parse(nu m.Substring(0, num.IndexOf('%' ))) / 100D;

Hi Folks, I *can* calculate the Gross Profit Percentage where both the Cost and SellPrice are known, using the formula: (SellPrice - Cost) / SellPrice = GPP eg ($24.92 - $14.95) / $24.92 = 40% But I wanted to do the reverse of that....to calculate the SellPrice, where only Cost and the desired GPP are supplied.

I am storing a percentage in a Double field. No problem formatting it for presentation (e.g. .33456 shows as 33.456%). But when the user edits the field, they have to type in the decimal equivalent. (e.g. .33456 for 33.456%). What am I doing wrong? -- PeteCresswell

Hi there, I have a 28mb XML file which I parse with SAX. I have some processing to do in the startElement / endElement callbacks, which slows the parsing down to about 60 seconds on my machine. My application is unresponsive for this time, so I would like to show a progress bar. I could show a spinner to show that the application is responsive, but I would prefer to show a percentage. Is there any way to query the parser to see how...

I need help on this utillity it is supposed to take as its first argument a number and its second argument a subtraction of that number say for example 20 and 2. The program should calculate the percentage lost or gained by the first number using the second number. This program is reporting to me the opposite of what it should and I have tried everything. It says this. 20 2 or 2 from 20 leaving 18 is 90% loss.

It seems that when i try to write a percentage sign (%) into the event log using WriteEntry method, the log believes that i'm refering to some variable from command line. Is it a special character when logging? I've tried to Google it a while but i saw nobody giving a suggestion for a resolution.
