## Introduction

Recently in my current project, I encountered the requirement to generate a customer invoice with the total amount converted into its verbal representation;

Example. 200is "Two Hundred"

5150.20 is "Five thousand one hundred fifty rupees and twenty paise.

Before I wrote my own code, I first googled it, but unfortunately (or maybe I am a bad Googler), I didn't get any solution that could convert numbers into words (Indian Format), so I decided to write my own solution rather than wasting time on Google, I had a basic idea of how to do it, and after doing a lot of code-reengineering, I finally ended up with working code.

Example

``````using System;
namespace ConsoleApplication3
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
Console.WriteLine("Do You wish to continue Y/N");
{
Console.WriteLine("Enter Number");
ConvertMyword(int.Parse(s));
Console.WriteLine("Do You wish to continue Y/N");
}
}
static void ConvertMyword(int number)
{
int flag = 0;
int lflag = 0;
string words = String.Empty;
string[] places = { "ones", "ten", "hundred", "thousand", "ten thousand", "lacs", "tenlacs", "crore", "tencrore", "Billon" };
string rawnumber = number.ToString();
char[] a = rawnumber.ToCharArray();
Array.Reverse(a);
if (a.Length >= 2)
{
for (int i = a.Length - 1; i >= 0; i--)
{
if (i % 2 == 0 && i > 2)
{
if (int.Parse(a[i].ToString()) > 1)
{
if (int.Parse(a[i - 1].ToString()) == 0)
{
words = words + getNumberStringty(int.Parse(a[i].ToString())) + " " + places[i - 1] + " ";
}
else
{
words = words + getNumberStringty(int.Parse(a[i].ToString())) + " ";
}
}
else if (int.Parse(a[i].ToString()) == 1)
{
if (int.Parse(a[i - 1].ToString()) == 0)
{
words = words + "Ten" + " ";
}
else
