leading zeros

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am busy with a word press and I need to add leading zeros to a number in javascript so that for example 9 becomes 0.00009, and 30 becomes 0.00030 and 560 becomes 0.00560.

I am very new to Javascript. I have been looking at the pad left functions. Is this the correct function or is there another one.

 

Any help will be much appreciated

Have you considered dividing the number by 100000?

    var n = 560;
    n = n / 100000;
    document.write(n.toFixed(5));   // 0.00560

Simple mathematics is usually reliable.

Divide by 100... divide by 100,000... that means the next one will be divide by 100,000,000?
