Adding a list of some of the Rails formatting helpers I often have to use:
- Converting a number to a dollar amount -> number_to_currency(field_value)
- Changing the date to US date format (MM/DD/YYYY) -> field_value.strftime(“%m/%d/%Y”)
- Converting to a percentage -> number_to_percentage(field_value)
For additional helpers with numbers here’s the link to the Rails API for number helpers
resources for using jqgrid with Rails
formatters available for jqgrid (use to format the data showing in jqgrid)
My dates were displaying DD-MM-YYYY, but I wanted to display it MM/DD/YYYY.
Here’s an easy way to do that.
