NumberFormatInfo

Synopsis

This class defines how numbers are displayed according to culture and language. Formats for currency and its symbols and types of numeric formats, such as scientific and hexadecimal notations and their separators, are described by the properties of this class. As with DateTimeFormatInfo, a set of standard numeric formats is predefined and specified by format characters.

The default property values apply to the invariant culture settings. The culture-specific NumberFormatInfo instance is retrieved by CurrentInfo, which is determined by the CultureInfo of the current thread or environment.
