  • Hello COLEplusTEN,

    How do you use the tostring method? I think you have set custom numeric format strings for tostring it something like below?

  • This is the line of code

    set.DeductibleAmount.Value = selectedQuote.Deductible.ToString();

    which has been in our code base for years.

    Deductible is equal to int zero and after the call to ToString() DeductibleAmount.Value is being set to "000." No special numeric format is being used.

  • I suspect that it might be your Value property on DeductibleAmount that is formatting the number.

    Posting the type definition of DeductibleAmount and Value along with the Deductible property type would be useful.

  • DeductibleAmount is just a string inside a custom class.

  • Is Deductible a simple int? i.e. not some custom class that acts like an int but overrides ToString().

    And you're sure the property setter for DeductibleAmount.Value has no formatting code in it?

    Have you put a debug breakpoint on that line of code and tried stepping in?

  • DeductibleAmount cannot be just a string. Strings don't have a Value property.


    Please post the type definitions.

  • Please show us the relevant parts (get/set for DeductibleAmount and Deductible) of your custom class ...
