Put Comma Values in Numbers

This function assumes what is being submitted to it is a string, with a decimal point and two places after the decimal. To get your number into that format first, use this.

Then this function will properly comma separate the number. For example, 2345643.00 will return 2,345,643.00

function CommaFormatted(amount) {
	var delimiter = ","; // replace comma if desired
	var a = amount.split('.',2)
	var d = a[1];
	var i = parseInt(a[0]);
	if(isNaN(i)) { return ''; }
	var minus = '';
	if(i < 0) { minus = '-'; }
	i = Math.abs(i);
	var n = new String(i);
	var a = [];
	while(n.length > 3) {
		var nn = n.substr(n.length-3);
		a.unshift(nn);
		n = n.substr(0,n.length-3);
	}
	if(n.length > 0) { a.unshift(n); }
	n = a.join(delimiter);
	if(d.length < 1) { amount = n; }
	else { amount = n + '.' + d; }
	amount = minus + amount;
	return amount;
}

    Ohhh.. Wonderful code snippet. Searching for long time.

    this is how I do it:

    function addCommas(nStr)
    {
    nStr += ”;
    var x = nStr.split(‘.’);
    var x1 = x[0];
    var x2 = x.length > 1 ? ‘.’ + x[1] : ”;
    var rgx = /(\d+)(\d{3})/;
    while (rgx.test(x1)) {
    x1 = x1.replace(rgx, ‘$1′ + ‘,’ + ‘$2′);
    }
    return x1 + x2;
    }

      Jack you function is much better thx. The function from the post is riddled with errors.

    How about this script.
    Any chance to insert a comma or a space between the numbers in this counter?

    kasa=new Date(2008 ,12 ,60 ,30 ,01);
    setInterval(function(){
    with(Math){
    var w=floor(((new Date())-kasa)/1000),lr,dr,mr,
    l=floor(w/31536000),d=floor((lr=w%31536000)/86400),
    g=floor((dr=lr%86400)/3600),m=floor((mr=dr%3600)/60),
    s=floor(mr%60);
    document.getElementById(‘money’).innerHTML=
    (l?l+’ l., ‘:”)+d+’ dni,’+g+’ godz., ‘
    +m+’ min., ‘+s+’ sek.';
    }
    },1000);
    setInterval(function(){
    document.getElementById(‘MoneyCounter’).innerHTML=
    ((new Date())-kasa);
    },130);

    Here’s the same thing in 1 line. If anybody can do better, do share.

    function commas(str) {
        return str.replace(/.(?=(?:.{3})+$)/g, '$&,');
    }
  6. Can’t do better making it shorter, but I can fix it so it takes numeric arguments!

    function commas(str) {
    return (str+””).replace(/.(?=(?:.{3})+$)/g, ‘$&,’);
    }

  7. Hmm… and make it handle decimals in a hackish way. ;-)

    function commas(str) {return (str+””).replace(/.(?=(?:[0-9]{3})+\b)/g, ‘$&,’);

    function format(input)
    {
    var num=input.value.replace(/[^\d]/g,”);
    if(num.length>3)
    num = num.replace(/\B(?=(?:\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ‘-‘);
    input.value=num;
    }

  9. Hello Chris,

    If amount will be 2200 then your var “d” will give an error as undefined variable and script will not execute this script only work when your amount is 2200.00 so I have edited your script and used it in my website ;) below is revised code which might solve this issue.

    function CommaFormatted(amount) {
    var delimiter = ","; // replace comma if desired
    var a = amount.split('.',2)
    var d = a[1];
    var i = parseInt(a[0]);
    if(isNaN(i)) {
    return '';
    }
    var minus = '';
    if(i < 0) {
    minus = '-';
    }
    i = Math.abs(i);
    var n = new String(i);
    var a = [];
    while(n.length > 3) {
    var nn = n.substr(n.length-3);
    a.unshift(nn);
    n = n.substr(0,n.length-3);
    }
    if(n.length > 0) {
    a.unshift(n);
    }
    n = a.join(delimiter);
    if(d) {
    if(d.length < 1) {
    amount = n;
    } else {
    amount = n + '.' + d;
    }
    } else {
    amount = n + ".00"
    }
    amount = minus + amount;
    return amount;
    }

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
