Showing an integer as currency with Jquery


Go to solution Solved by Barand,

I have numbers stored in a database in pence (or cents).

For example i have an item that costs 100 pounds stored as 10000 as this is the number of pence in 100 pounds.

When i am working with Jquery, how would i show the value as 100 pounds.

I have chosen this route based on some research with maths issues of storing it in pounds should their be decimals to calculate.

I was concidering a division by 100 but i am not sure what the recommended method for working with currency like this is for display only purposes.
