FormatString not working for some values

Thread ID:

Asked On December 28, 2018 06:19 PM UTC


I want to show some text for the SfNumericUpDown

If I use a format string = "of X" and X is a number other than zero, it works, but if X is 0 the value of the control replaces X


FormatString = "of 0" and current value 4, will show "of 4"
FormatStirng = "of 9" and current value 7, will show "7 of 9"

Is this a bug?

Thanks In Advance

Hi Rodrigo, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We have validated your query  "Format string property of SfNumericUpDown".  When we set  "0" as a format string, then 0 will be considered as a Number for the SfNumericUpDown control. Whereas when we set format string as any other number or string, it will be considered as constants. Hence 0 gets changed when we change the SfNumericUpDown value by using + and - button. 
For more information about FormatString "0", please check on the below given link from Microsoft. 

Please let us know if you have any further clarifications on this.
