Can I use maxDecimalPlaces to round a number instead of truncate.

Patrick OFriel asked on June 10, 2019

Hello, I have a column that should show only two decimal places and round the value when necessary.  For example, when a cell has the number ‘23.32678’, it should display ‘23.33’. Here’s an example in fiddle where it is just cutting off the extra decimal places https://jsfiddle.net/4z290g1p/ .

Is there a simple way to accomplish what I’m looking for?

We also noticed when importing that dataset as a CSV the values round correctly

Hello,
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 
We would like to point out that maxDecimalPlaces should round the numbers.
Our team is working on this and the fix will be available in the minor release of Flexmonster with the ETA 15th of July.
 
As a workaround, the decimalPlaces property can be used.
The decimalPlaces parameter specifies the exact number of decimals to show after the decimal separator. 
 
For example, 

formats: [
{ decimalPlaces: 2}
]

 
Here is a JSFiddle example for illustration.
 
Please let us know if this works for you.
 
You are welcome to contact us in case further questions arise.
 
Best Regards,
Vera
