Is there a way (or a plug in that will help) to format numbers in the list output?

I have prices that I want to format with commas.  I use html to add the dollar-sign, but would also like the commas (e.g. $23,456)

Will the code pack do that?  (Is there any documentation for the code pack??)  Thanks in advance!

Hello shoshanaz,

you can use the plugin typo PHP String.

You will be able to do what you want with the option number_format.


Regards.

  I tried the php string typography plugin, but couldn't figure out what it wanted in the fields in the construction format with the "number_format" dropdown selected.   I am trying to end up with 12345 being formatted as $12,345 for the field "veh_price".  

I couldn't find any documentation, so if you can help me understand these fields, I'd be very grateful.

  • undefined*
  • length
  • COM_CCK

After a lot of trial and error the settings below gave me what I needed, but I still do not understand why.  Some explanation will probably be very helpful when dealing with other formats choices.  Thanks in advance!

function: number_format
length: blank
prefix: $
undefined*:0
COM_CCK_...: ,
Suffix: blank
Typography on Label: No
Typography Target: Auto
