CustomNumberFormat CoClass

An object for formatting numbers in a user-defined format.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


CustomNumberFormat is an ICustomNumberFormat interface coclass whose members determine how the ValueToString method in the associated INumberFormat interface formats numbers. Define your own customized format using the FormatString property.

The custom-number-format object and its default interface allow numeric values to be formatted as strings. It works by pattern matching and allows conversions, such as changing ValueToString(12345678.9) to “12,345,678.90 dollars”.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux
