Hello I need to format int,12345678 as

What style can I use?

I have tried several and nothing is working

I do not want to have to style the string manually. I was hoping something like this would work:


string.Format("{0:#.##.##.###}", 12345678)
but it doesn't.



RE: format a number a specific way

OK I figured it out.


 Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0:0\\.00\\.00\\.000}", 12345678));


I guess i needed to escape the decimal points.
