If len is less than the number of significant decimal places of numberVar, then the function applies standard rounding (round up for 5 or greater, else round down). If len is greater than the number of significant decimal places of numberVar, then the function pads the extra places with zeroes. If len is negative, an error is thrown. ## UsageThis function allows you to express numbers with a desired number of decimal places; for example, to express results of currency calculations with exactly two decimal places. ## ExampleThe following uses of toFixed() yield the results shown. var profits=2487.8235 ## See Also |
