Hi,
I want to format a number as given below

Number 5.75
Expected output:5.75%



Output is 575%
which is wrong since the expected output is 5.75%

I can achieve the expected output using


but i dont want to use that. I want to use either percent or pattern to get the desired result.

Thanks in advance......

Divide the value by 100.

Maybe your expected output, but the java.text.DecimalFormat class specifies that the % sign should: Multiply by 100 and show as percentage.

It is designed for the case where you do the calculation. eg 8/10 on the test translates as 80%, not 0.8%
