Negative Number Representation in Reports

Hi There,

Just want to share with you short tip: if you want to have a different representations of negative numbers in the report, it is easy to do using format file in control properties.

So if you have negative numbers with “-” sign, like here:

You can change format in control Properties.

For that example, if you want to show it in brackets (1) instead of -1, than just use following mask:
#,##0.00;(#,##0.00)
As you can see here, negative representation is specified after “;” sign.
Masks are related to standard .NET formatting rules.

And than you can check it in browser.

Have a fast reporting!
