NVelocity template with decimal to two decimal places

I wanted to be able to output a decimal value from an object in my NVelocity template.

For example, the value of the decimal was: 3.40000 to represent 3.4.

The end result:

Total Order Value: 3.40 GBP

I needed to display this as currency format. Sure, I could of used this String.Format method, but that adds £ or $ or whatever (depending on your environment setup) to the start of the resulting string.

In the end, I used ToString with “N2” formatter.

So, in my nVelocity template, here is what I would use:

Total Order Value: $Order.GrandTotal.ToString("N2") GBP

There are some other alternatives discussed here:
