I am currently using the visual force component to get the grand total of my pageblocktable column as referred too in this question 'To achieve Grand total for the retrieved column in a datatable generated using Soql' Please and help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Here is the total. How can I format this in to dollar amount? Nothing is working, please advise.

  • Jonathan, what precisely isn't working ? Maybe we can better understand if you show us your code and current progress or attempts. Jan 29, 2015 at 15:52

Below is the code which could help you in formatting total value : <script> function numberWithCommas(x) { return x.toString().replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ","); } // Here we will set the generated subtotals to the footer cells document.getElementsByClassName('t4')[0].innerHTML = '$ '+numberWithCommas({!total4}); </script>

This will allow you to maintain comma in between total value. Example Total: 397423.66 will be displayed as 'Total: $ 397,423.66'

  • hot diggidy daym! Thats some sweet code right there! All those escapes n stuff. Impressive!

Pretty sure you need to add an apex:param between the apex:outputText tags that contains the value you wish to format.

<apex:outputText value"{0,number,$###,###,##0.00}">
    <apex:param value="{!total4}" />
  • I tried this and it did not work because total4 is an apex variable but I got it figured out the Javascript just will not show when it is in being rendered as a PDF now. Jan 30, 2015 at 14:24

If you are setting the GrandTotal using Javascript, why not add the $ during that point?

document.getElementsByClassName('t4')[0].innerHTML = '${!total4}';
