I have the below and am horrible with JS - the number seem to be rounding - but want to leave it as is - more of a "mask" - but just want 3 places out past the decimal, but no rounding.

(parseFloat(value) * 1.0).toFixed(3)

How about "toString" and then cutting off the last digits?

var stringValue = String(8756.324932);
var pos = stringValue.indexOf(".");
var maskedValue = stringValue(0, pos + 4);
alert(maskedValue);

<script language="javascript">
 
var threedigit = new String( (parseFloat(123.456789)).toFixed(4) );
document.write( threedigit.substr(0,threedigit.length-1) );
 
 
</script>
