#9476 closed defect (fixed)

dojox.charting.plot2d.Pie._getLabel() makes use of Number.toFixed() which is broken in IE

Reported from a co-worker of mine:

The function dojox.charting.plot2d.Pie._getLabel() uses Number.toFixed() to round and stringify the number that is displayed as label next to the pie element.

Number.toFixed() is broken in Internet Explorer for numbers between 0.5 and 0.95 - in this case it returns 0 instead of 1.

Therefore the following alert would show 0:

var a = 0.921;

var b = 0;


A workaround is to round the number using Math.round(). This would return 1:

alert((Math.round(Math.pow(10, b) * a) / Math.pow(10, b)).toFixed(b));

or use dojo.number.round (though you'd have to check back in 1.2 to see if this quirk was fixed back then) iirc, the IE bug is more extensive than this and comes up anytime the most significant digit is 5-9 in a number < 1.

probably a good idea to use dojo.number format also for i18n (proper decimal point, etc.)

dojo.number sounds right to me: l10n + one place to fix quirks..

bumping tickets that didn't make the 1.4 cut, but most likely to go in the next point release.
