I am new to JavaScript and have what may be a very simple and easy question to most. I am writing a simple block of code that I need to display dollar amounts with 2 decimals for change. For example instead of displaying the number 5, I need it to display 5.00. How can I do this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

hello see this code:
it will print 200 as 200.00

``````<script language="javascript">
function CurrencyFormatted(amount)
{
var i = parseFloat(amount);
if(isNaN(i)) { i = 0.00; }
var minus = '';
if(i < 0) { minus = '-'; }
i = Math.abs(i);
i = parseInt((i + .005) * 100); …``````

s = new String(i);

if(s.indexOf('.') == (s.length - 2)) { s += '0'; }
s = minus + s;
return s;
}
</script>``````
