The DisplayDegrees property sets or returns an option that tells the ValueToString method in the associated INumberFormat interface whether or not the resulting formatted expression is in degrees or radians.

DisplayDegrees has to do with the ValueToString result. If you want the resulting formatted number to be a degree value, set DisplayDegrees True. If DisplayDegrees is False, the formatted number is a radian value.

The settings for DisplayDegrees are:

Setting Description
False (Default) The resulting format is a radian value. A degree symbol is not appended.
True The resulting format is a degree value. A degree symbol (�) is appended to the format.
