Number Formatting in UWP Numeric UpDown (SfNumericUpDown)

NOTE

A detailed explanation of Numeric formatting is available here. The result string produced by these format specifiers are influenced by the settings in the Regional Options control panel. Computers with different cultures or different numeric settings will generate different result strings.

Culture

The Culture property helps to localize the SfNumericUpDown control. Culture property is of type CultureInfo. Text will be formatted based on the specified Culture. Default Value is the Current UI Culture.

SfNumericUpDown updown = new SfNumericUpDown();

updown.Value = 123.45;

updown.Culture = new CultureInfo("de-DE");
Dim updown As New SfNumericUpDown()

updown.Value = 123.45

updown.Culture = New CultureInfo("de-DE")

NOTE

Note that the decimal separator and group separator are affected by the culture in this case.

NOTE

Since CultureInfo type does not contain a default constructor, it is not possible to set this property from XAML.

        <editors:SfNumericUpDown x:Name="numericUpDown"

                               HorizontalAlignment="Center"

                               VerticalAlignment="Center"

                               Width="200" 

FormatString="C"
