Blank-out Zero/Null Currency Template Fields - BYZ041

<< back to previous screen

By default VP-ASP will show a zero amount (and your currency symbol) if your currency amount is zero. However, often you will want zero/null values to not show up at all, and you will also want the corresponding label to not show if the amount is zero or null. This addon allows you to do that.

Compatibility, Bundling, and Status Notes:
Compatible with VPASP V4.5 to V6.5
Before installing, you must have installed:

This extra template field will allow you to use the following logic in your templates for whichever values you want it to:

Use blank/null (no currency symbol, amount, or decimal) if the currency amount is null or zero, otherwise show the formatted currency value (with the ccy symbol and decimal places)

You can then use the "$" at the front of the line in your template to ensure that null/zero values also do not show the label.

You can use this optionally wherever you want in your templates, while still continuing to use the standard currency template fields for amounts which should always show up when the value is null/zero.

This is particularly useful for tax amounts, shipping amounts, discounts, retailprice etc.


Tax: [formatcurrency otax]

If the tax amount is zero or null then this will show something like:
Tax: $0.00

If you use the new template field with a "$" at the front:


Then the entire line will not be shown when your tax amount is zero or null, and if the value is not zero or null then it'll show the proper formatted currency amount.

Technical/Developer Information:
This works for all types of templates (products, orders, customers etc)
