Hi,

Is it possible to remove a currency format?

For instance i start with a double, e.g. 10.00.

Applying code like below will give the string �10.00.



However, i now want to be able to convert that string back to its double value. Anyone know how i can do this?

Also, its not possible for me to use the original double!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

This isn't a swing-specific question, so I'm moving it to JiG intermediate.

Try this:

Hope it helps. Just a note, the parse(String) method will return a long if possible so for your original example it will return a long with a value of 10. Therefore to insure that the final value is a double you must invoke the doubleValue() method.
