jQuery FormatCurrency Plugin

This plugin has been made obselete.
Please use the latest release available on google code at http://jquery-formatcurrency.googlecode.com

Hey all, its been a while since my last post.  This just a simple little format currency plugin that I built a while back.  Hope everyone enjoys it.

About the Plugin

The plugin, called the FormatCurrency Plugin, requires the jQuery core file and a single javascript file, jquery.formatCurrency.js. A demo is available on my prorfolio website. The plugin was designed with the following features.

  • Formats the selector’s value to a formatted version of the currency.

Options

useHtml – if true this value uses the html() attribute to get and set the value for the currency, otherwise the plugin will use the val() attribute.  The default is false.

symbol – The dollar sign to be used when formatting the currency. The default is $.

Downloads

Using the Plugin

In order to use this plugin create an html page and attached the jQuery core javascript file and the jquery.formatCurrency.js file.  In this example I will be formatting the currency on a button click.  Although another popular formatting technique would be to set the currency on lost focus (the sample download and demo contain both options).

Html

<div class="sample">
<h3>Formatting Using Button Click</h3>
<input type="textbox" id="currencyField" value="$1,220.00" />
     <input type="button" id="currencyButton" value="Convert" /></div>

Javascript

    $(document).ready(function()
    {
        $('#currencyButton').click(function()
        {
            $('#currencyField').formatCurrency();
        });
    });

Known Issues

At the moment their are no known issues.  The plugin has been tested successfully in Windows IE 8 Beta, Mozilla, and Google Chrome.
