For those who know C++, there is a format where you can aline decimals under each other (ex. like a telephone bill), but in Java I've search for the same kind of format in the NumberFormat & DecimalFormat.. and I haven't found it.
Maybe I'm blind, but I'm sure it exists!
Can anyone help me out
Thanks
Phil

You could use the decimalFormat() to make the number of digits after the decimal the same and the right justify them all. I can't find any other method.
