i have amount field in database which is to be displayed in textbox. Now what i want is that it should contain only 2 digits after decimal point. how can i format this??

Use ToString() overload where you can specify a format. So it will be like -
decimalValue.ToString ("#.##");

Hope this helps!

Don't replace that with anything. Copy it as it is.

'#' means number format....
The solution 1 given by Ankur is good.
I want to add that if you want to force 0 to be displayed when there are no numbers after the decimal point and also to display a comma separator, the following format can be used
TextBox1.Text = Amount.ToString("#,0.00");
//The format will be
//3 ->  3.00
//3.4 ->  3.40
//.5 -> 0.50
//4594.3 -> 4,594.30
