Hi everyone

I have some data from Json. I want to format the data that the data type is Currency.

How do I remove the dollar sign($) in front of the amount when I use the Data Gird?

I have changed the Symbol property of the Data Grid to "", but it doesn't work.

Otherwise, why are there parentheses when the value of a negative number is displayed on the screen?

How can I display negative values normally?

In Json : -2366.88  In Data Grid : ($2366.88)

In Json : 9204.55   In Data Grid : $9204.55

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Kind Regards


I never used this, but after some research, the currency WB put the default symbol if the variable is empty ($).

So you should use the Number WB, and if not mistaken this config should work

Used this based on:
