human readable number formatting – C#: File-size format provider – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/04/20

Boy, I love stackoverflow.

Unlike a forum – which is focussed on discussion – stackoverflow is focussed on questions and answers, and they have lots of good answers.

Recently, I had to format numbers in a human readable way.

The formatting – C#: File-size format provider – Stack Overflow question had at least 3 good ways.

I chose the FileSizeFormatProvider answer, as it best fitted my goal and it is easy to extend, but the StrFormatByteSize answer works very well too if you need an ‘out of the box’ solution that works on native Windows.
