    Displaying decimal places does not always seem to work

    Asked by WolfgangLenzen on September 07, 2015 at 09:43 AM

    I´m using conditions to update read-only fields with a calculated price sum in my form. In the advanced options of th calculation I set the number of decimals to 2, but the calculated sum in the field is alsways displayed with a dynamic length.

    When setting up the decimal places to be shown, it is important to make sure that the setting for .00 is also set properly - as per your preferences.

    Most people like to have the decimal places when the amount is not equal to zero (.01, .99), while if the decimal places are equal to 0 to not be included.

    If you want to show the decimal places even if they are .00, then you should make sure that your advanced settings are set like so:

    Once you follow these steps it will show you decimal places each time.

    Do let us know how it goes.
