#,### problem

Hi,

In my C# Windows Form, I would like to input a number "1234" and the output
is "1,234".
What do I need to do?
Thanks for help.

you can use Insert(int, string) on the string object.

string s = "1234";
s.Insert(1,",");

this solution will only work for 4 num char so to make it dynamic you will
have to use intelligent insert. You can use RegEx for that (e.g. for digits
like 100,000, or 1,200,000.34)

A better solution would be to convert the string to a number, using the
Parse method on the Int32 structure, and then to call the ToString method,
passing n or N for the format (which allows you to use group sizes).

Hope this helps.

Thanks!
Would you go into more details? Doesn't the C# already has an existing
class for this?

Hi Jason,

That was what Nicholas said. If you have a string represenation of a
number "1234", then you need to parse it to an int (Int32)

int n = Int32.Parse("1234");

However, once you have the number, simply call ToString() on the number,
specifying the format as N or N0 (zero, indicating the number trailing
zeroes, default is 2)

MessageBox.Show( n.ToString( "N" ) );
