DataFormatString currency
Having an issue with using DataFormatString={0:c}, which is currency. It will display the value formatted with the currency of the current locale (Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture). How does that make sence? If I have a value in my database, say 1000, the currency is already set. I can't have some users see it as 1000 and others as $1000. See how that is sortof wrong? I don't see how the currency format is useful... Anyone?

Being able to format a string based on particular locale is massively useful in a lot of situations, it just isn't applicable in this one. In this situation it is probably easier to just hard code the format rather than relying on the user's locale, unless you also want to convert the value into the user's currency and then format it in this way.

Are you formatting other parts of the output into the user's locale?
