Ewww Dreamweaver :'(

If you're dealing with currency, which it looks like you are, then you should definately use money_format().


However if you just want want to have a decimal place and not a comma change it to this:

$row_total[ number_format, 'sub_total, 2, '.' ''']; ?>"

Notice the change of the comma to a period :)

Did this solve your question Chris?

<?php echo $row_total[ number_format 'sub_total, 2, '.', ''']; ?>"

i use this code and i get this error

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ''sub_total, 2, '' (T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING), expecting ']' in /homepages/0/d461548742/htdocs/zunaphone.com/myspace/panier.php on line 278

I'm no expert on this function, but shouldn't it be:

echo number_format((int)$row_total, 2,'.','');

Since you are denoting an array $row_total[blah];

Are you trying to acheive something like this:

<?php echo number_format($row_total['sub_total'], 2, '.', ''); ?>


From the looks of it you're trying to use the number_format function on an array reference? You should instead call the function on the array variable itself. Does that make sense?


How would this work:

<?php echo number_format($row_total['sub_total'], 2, '.', '')]; ?>

Where did the last ] come from?

It should be:

<?php echo number_format($row_total['sub_total'], 2, '.', ''); ?>

Would work, I guess!


I cant believe I actually didnt click with your issue earlier, sorry!

ohh thank too much my friends, this one work

<?php echo number_format($row_total['sub_total'], 2, '.', ''); ?>

Please mark this thread as solved and give rep to who you think helped you.
