A very simple interest calculator

Enter Principal, Interest Rate and Term (In years) after each year the interest earned is added to the principal and recalculated for every year.

This is my very first C# program and I am still very new to this, if there is anyone who could help with shortening my decimal places to 2 I'd appreciate ir very much.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.


please provide html code

I only code in Visual Basic so can offer a solution to your question that way. There are free VB to C# converters on the web and they are easy to use. Here is the solution to your problem in VB:

"YourTextBox".Text = String.Format("{0:n2}", "YourVariable"

Substitute "YourTextBox" and "YourVariable" with the names that you have used but do not include the quotation marks.
