I am fetching some values from my DB.

The columns are of float type and are being displaced in DataList in the following manner.



    <td style="width:200px;text-align:left"> Item1: <%#Eval("Item1") %>  |  Item2: <%#Eval("Item2") %></td>



I have to restrict the number of decimal values being displayed int he data list to 3.

How can I do that here?

In the code-behind, the data is being fetched into the DataTable as follows.

SqlDataAdapter adp = new SqlDataAdapter("Retrieve", ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["cn"].ConnectionString);

             DataSet ds = new DataSet();

             adp.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

             adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@s1", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 255).Value = strategies;

             adp.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@s2", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 255).Value = DropDownList1.SelectedItem.ToString();


             DataList1.DataSource = ds;
