Hi,
i work on an Request Modul for Wikipedia and have the following Problem..

in my Line (Code) i read the KM from nearby Wikipedia in this form..

Code:
"<br>Entfernung: ", item.distance, " KM"));


It will show me Results like that :
Entfernung: 8.621993412293858 KM

How can i reduce this Output to 8.62 KM, so that the Preview is easy to read ?
Can any give me some assist ??

Regards
Kasimir

Hi Kasimir

You are right there are too many digits. I have truncated them to four.

If you want to truncate them further you can use the javascript functions to do so. You can multiply the number by 100, convert it to an integer and divide it again by 100 to get two digits.

Best
