Description John 2012-09-10 04:33:31 UTC
When I convert a string to double and show this in a Label the dot is not shown on the iPad.
When I use the simulator is does show.


string strDouble = "99.99";
double dDouble = 0;
dDouble= double.Parse(strDouble);
this.label.Text =dDouble

On simulator = "99.99"
On Ipad ="9999"

This is because the locale is different between the iPad and the simulator.

You need to pass the locale you want to use to the Parse method:

double.Parse (strDouble, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)
