Numbers are formatted using patterns, like #,###.00. For example, the pattern #,###.00 when used to format the number 12345.678 could result in "12'345,678". That would happen if the grouping separator for your language is an apostrophe, and the decimal separator is a comma.

Important: The characters . , 0 # (and others below) are special placeholders that stand for the decimal separator, and so on, and are NOT real characters. You must NOT "translate" the placeholders. For example, don't change . to , even though in your language the decimal point is written with a comma. The symbols should be replaced by the local equivalents, using the appropriate NumberSymbol for your language.

Here are the special characters used in number patterns:

Symbol Meaning
. Replaced automatically by the character used for the decimal point.
, Replaced by the "grouping" (thousands) separator.
0 Replaced by a digit (or zero if there aren't enough digits).
# Replaced by a digit (or nothing if there aren't enough).
¤ Replaced by a currency symbol, such as $ or USD.
% Marks a percent format. The % symbol may change position, but must be retained.
E Marks a scientific format. The E symbol may change position, but must be retained.
' Special characters used as literal characters are quoted with ASCII single quotes.
