Displaying the Euro Sign in a Textbox

Don't you just hate it that the Euro monetary symbol is not present on all computers?

With this simple trick you can add the Euro sign to a textbox.

Put a Textbox on your form. In its Text Property use the shortcut Alt 0128. Then add this code to make use of it properly:

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            textBox1.Text += Convert.ToDecimal(txtEuros.Text);
            //OR If your regional settings are set up correctly
            textBox1.Text = Convert.ToDecimal(txtEuros.Text).ToString("C"); 
        }
