Hi, Manipulate[ Graphics[{Circle[], Inset[Style[ StringJoin["value:", ToString[ NumberForm[N[c], {16, 8}, NumberPadding -> {" ", "0"}, NumberSigns -> {"-", " "}]]], Blue, 20]]}], {{c, (2 \[Pi])/3, "Value c"}, -1, 2 Pi, 0.001}] and you should use a mono spaced font, otherwise the different width of the characters will make problems.
