How can I format a percentage to be human readable?
The input formatted as a percent saves 5 as .05 in the database, which makes sense. However, there is no way to format the percent on the front end. Because I think its more visually appealing to display five percent as “5%”, I am trying to either multiply the dynamic value by 100 or :format as a percentage, but neither of these are options. Oddly, formatting the value only gives URL encoding and US Phone as options.
The field needs to be a number. You can then put the % after it.
Oddly, if the field is a number in the db, then you can’t format the input as a percent.
Not sure what you mean here.
Number on db. Input as percentage. Output formatted as above.
I am autohiding my input, which only gives the possibilities of integer and decimal. Remove autobinding and all the other content formats appear.
Sounds like a bug ? Haven’t used autobinding yet, so not sure.
@emmanuel, did you guys fix this autobinding issue? If I’m not mistaken, I thought I noticed a fix shortly after your “like”. Now it seems the problem still persists.
I’m not sure what you’re talking about. If you think it’s a bug please file a report.
I’m trying to make a workflow to calculate a value based on a percentage. Like this:
Order total price*10% = Tip
I’m trying to make a change of a thing, on a workflow tab, but I’m unable to put the % symbol after the expression. I tried formating the 10 as a percentage, but it keeps asking for an expression after
Thanks in advance for your help @NigelG and you guys!
You don’t need to put the % in there.
Just do it as a number.
Thanks for your reply, as I needed to calculate the number based in 10% I just multiplied the value by 0.1
That worked just fine.
