DataFormatString to format Phone Number

Postby Y3JwaWV0c2NobWFubg » Thu, 07 Dec 2006 01:09:01 GMT

I am showing a phone number field in an ObjectList control. I am trying to 
format the phone number using the DataFormatString, but I am having problems 
getting it to work. I need to to be formatted like this: 555-555-5555

I have the Phone Number field saved in the database as a varchar so it is 
coming across in the data binding as a string.

Here's an example of what's coming from the database:

I have tried the following DataFormatString values with no avail:

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a 10 digit phone number stored as a string in a SQL server table.  My 
datagrid currently displays it as 1234567890, but I would like to format the

4.Formatting phone number of a DetailsView control

I have a data bound Details View control in 2.0 that formats a
phone number. The 'Default Mode' for the control is set to Edit. The
phone number field is a template field and I can successfully call a
function that formats the phone number when the control is filled.  But
when updating, the value being passed in to my format function is
vbNull instead of the value in the phone number field of the control.
How can I get the update value to be the value of the phone number
Here is the  template field and formatting function. Thank You

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="AltPhone" SortExpression="AltPhone"
      <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox4" runat="server" MaxLength="14"
Text='<%# FormatPhoneNumber(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,
"AltPhone")) %>'></asp:TextBox>

Public Function FormatPhoneNumber(ByVal strNumber As String) As String
   Dim strTemp as String = strNumber

   If strTemp.Length > 0 Then
      strTemp = strTemp.Replace("(", "")
      strTemp = strTemp.Replace(")", "")
      strTemp = strTemp.Replace("-", "")
   End If

   Return strTemp
End Function
