Precision problem in float data type


#1

Hi there,

I have been facing problem in displaying the value of the column which
is of type float. by default it displays only single digit after decimal
point so how can I set the precision while displaying the value of the
field in the rhtml file

thanking you

You need to format it yourself as in:

<%= ‘%.2f’ % [your_value] %>

Compare:

‘%.2f’ % [4.5]
=> “4.50”

4.5.to_s
=> “4.5”
