Formatting price


Recommended Posts

Hi friends, I have to build a FusionPro template with a text rule to be able to have prices like this :



I know how to use the € as a superscript but need help to place the cents bellow the €.


Help is more than welcome ! :)


Best regards,


FusionPro 10.0.26

It's hard to know exactly what you need to do without seeing at least the data. You could create a table, or use something like a repeatable component. But if the price is always going to be on a fixed position on the page like that, then I think the easiest thing is just to have three separate text frames: One for the integral price, one for the Euro symbol, and one for the cents. You only need two rules to populate the two frames with the parts of the price, something like this:

// "Whole" amount
var price = parseFloat("$3".replace(/[^\d\.]/g, ''));
return Int(price);


// Cents
var price = parseFloat("$3".replace(/[^\d\.]/g, ''));
return FormatNumber("00", Math.round((price % 1) * 100));

Or, inject both parts in OnRecordStart:

var price = parseFloat("$3".replace(/[^\d\.]/g, ''));
FusionPro.Composition.AddVariable("WholePrice", Int(price));
FusionPro.Composition.AddVariable("Cents", FormatNumber("00", Math.round((price % 1) * 100)));
