Default Textbox Number Formatting

In DataGridView I can format a column to display bound, numerical data with commas or different lengths of decimals.

Isn't there an easy way to do the same with an individual bound textbox?

I normally do something like:

txt.Text = String.Format("{0:c"", <value>);

where value is a type of Double. How are you trying to format the string?

I answered my own question.

In the particular TextBox properties window, in DataBindings, Advanced--you can set number or date display formats.
