Hi Experts,

How can I format numbers in Javascript, like

99 ==> 99.00
105.5 ==> 105.50
1095.6 ==> 1,095.60

Thank you

You have to convert them to text.  Numbers in most languages do not keep 0's that do not affect the value.  See 'toFixed()' on this page:

But, toFixed does not at the thousands separator

I don't know of anything that does.  The standard methods are shown on that page.  As far as I know, you would have to write that yourself.

Any ideas how?

You'll have to use a js library like this:

This implements the same function as php's number_format so that number_format(1872737, 2) will give you 1,872,737.00
