# floating point precision in an HTML text field

I need the price field to always show two decimal points precision.  As it is now, two decimal points are shown only when the page loads, because I have initialized the price field to 150.00.  Play with the fields and controls and you will see that the fractional part goes away.  All of the floating point values that I use in the script have two decimal places, even 0.00.  How do I maintain two decimal places in the price field?

Use this function.
Then in your printing.js, replace the following line:

document.quote.price.value = price;

with:

document.quote.price.value = FormatNumber(price,2);

function FormatNumber(expr, decplaces) {
var str = "" + Math.round(eval(expr) * Math.pow(10,decplaces));
while (str.length <= decplaces){
str = "0" + str;
}
var decpoint = str.length - decplaces;
return str.substring(0,decpoint) + "." + str.substring(decpoint, str.length);
}
