I'm using the "number_format" function to denote money" attribute in PHP/MySQL.
The attribute itself is stored in my database.
Select account_balance from my_table where login = 'xxxxxx'; $correct_account_balance = number_format($account_balance, ['my_balance'],2); }
In other words : the denotation "2" will add two extra numbers after the decimal point, as follows : 10.00 (for example)
This code works fine............except for one small problem : if the amount after the decimal point has a zero at the end, it does not display!
For example : if the amount is, say, 10 dollars and 35 cents, it displays correctly : 10.35
However, if the amount is 10 dollars, and 30 cents, it displays as : 10.3 (instead of : 10.30 )
The reason is : my program also performs arithmetical operations on the account_balance AFTER I have converted it using the "number_format" function.
For example :
$correct_account_balance -= 0.25 (this will subtract 0.25 each time the program is executed)
This is why, anytime there is a "zero" at the end of the actual amount (like : 10.30), it displays as : 10.3
Is there anyway to get around this? Google doesn't seem to know;
