I use convert::tostring to convert a double value to string.

How do I convert it to a 2 decimal point number?

If my double value is 23, I want it to show as 23.00.

How to do that??

You may use directly the Double.ToString method for the purpose (see "Custom Numeric Format Strings" at MSDN[^]):
double d = 23;
string s = d.ToString("0.00", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);

:)

thx,it works for me.

But i saw the Convert::toString method can also accepet an overloading of Convert::ToString(Double, IFormatProvider).Can this method used to format the string?If yes,how?

I guess you've to create a new NumberFormatInfo object, customize it (see for instance http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.globalization.numberformatinfo.numberdecimaldigits.aspx ) and finally pass it as IFormatProvider parameter.
