    Default Decimal Places

    Hi and thanks for looking,

    I am using the IDE Netbeans

    I am trying to get the answer to show to two decimal points and have tried various ways but none which work for me.
    Here's the code.
        private void btnEqualsActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                          
        Double numAnswer; String strAnswer;
         numAnswer = (Double.parseDouble(txtNumOne.getText()))* (Double.parseDouble(txtNumTwo.getText()));
         strAnswer = Double.toString(numAnswer);
