Hi guys,
Can someone please help me to Format Numbers with commas. The script below have very large number without commas. To read numbers in trillions and billions are hard, without commas to separate the numbers. By cutting and pasting the JavaScript below into a web editor and you can clearly see what is happening. Please, help. Thank You,

Heya, freemld. Welcome to TSDN!

Please use CODE tags when posting source code:

JavaScript code goes here.

What do you want your code to do? Give an example.
What is your code doing that you don't want it to do? Give an example.

hi ...

may be the this post is of some help to you. you have to make some adaptions ... like:

in case your var-type is number -> make a string out of it:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var your_value = 13432343435;
  2. var str_value = new String(your_value);
use str_value to start with the script in the post. now you should have a look at the regEx ... it should be adapted to match from the end :) try or ask again for that.

further: look at the join-method ... where you should replace '</wbr>' with ',' ...

kind regards
