Examples

The following example demonstrates the effect of changing the PercentDecimalSeparator property.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Gets a NumberFormatInfo associated with the en-US culture.
   CultureInfo^ MyCI = gcnew CultureInfo( "en-US",false );
   NumberFormatInfo^ nfi = MyCI->NumberFormat;
   
   // Displays a value with the default separator (S".").
   Double myInt = 0.1234;
   Console::WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );
   
   // Displays the same value with a blank as the separator.
   nfi->PercentDecimalSeparator = " ";
   Console::WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );
}

/*
This code produces the following output.
12.34 %
12 34 %
*/
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 value with the default separator (".").
      Double myInt = 0.1234;
      Console.WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );

      // Displays the same value with a blank as the separator.
      nfi.PercentDecimalSeparator = " ";
      Console.WriteLine( myInt.ToString( "P", nfi ) );

   }
}


/* 
This code produces the following output.

12.34 %
12 34 %
*/
   
Imports System.Globalization

Class NumberFormatInfoSample

   Public Shared Sub Main()

      ' Gets a NumberFormatInfo associated with the en-US culture.
      Dim nfi As NumberFormatInfo = New CultureInfo("en-US", False).NumberFormat

      ' Displays a value with the default separator (".").
      Dim myInt As [Double] = 0.1234
      Console.WriteLine(myInt.ToString("P", nfi))

      ' Displays the same value with a blank as the separator.
      nfi.PercentDecimalSeparator = " "
      Console.WriteLine(myInt.ToString("P", nfi))

   End Sub

End Class


'This code produces the following output.

Remarks

The PercentDecimalSeparator property is used with the "P" standard format string to define the symbol that separates integral from fractional digits. For more information, see Standard Numeric Format Strings.
