Sorry for asking this but, I cant found a solution that will get this -> 7,000 to 7000.
I’m using intval() and number_format() but it will just give me 7 not 7000.
$myVal = '7,000'; echo intval($myVal);
this returns 7
same goes with number_format()
what am I doing wrong?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
If you are using PHP >= 5.3 (or have the “intl” extension installed, with at least version 1.0) then you could also use the
NumberFormatter class to parse a locale-specific number.
$myVal = '7,000'; $nf = new NumberFormatter("en_EN", NumberFormatter::DECIMAL); var_dump($nf->parse($myVal, NumberFormatter::TYPE_INT32)); # output: int(7000)
If you’re using a PHP-version less than 5.3 you’re better of using @KevinS. solution.
intval() won’t work with the string you have because of the comma. You can remove the comma by using
str_replace() and then calling
intval() like so:
echo intval(str_replace(',', '', $myVal))
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
