    CurrencyFormatter class

    AnnieK Level 1
      Hi,

      I am passing a number to a formatter method, it works OK for all number unless the number is negative and less than 1, it then returns a different number:

      Example:

      public static function currencyFormat( numIn : Number ) : String
      {
      var fmt_USD : CurrencyFormatter = new CurrencyFormatter();
      fmt_USD.rounding = 'none';
      fmt_USD.precision = 2;
      fmt_USD.currencySymbol = "$";
      fmt_USD.useThousandsSeparator = true;
      fmt_USD.alignSymbol = "left";
      fmt_USD.useNegativeSign = true;

      var strAmountFormatted : String = fmt_USD.format( numIn );

      return strAmountFormatted;
      }

      If I pass 0.63 into the method above it returns $.63
      but
      If I pass -0.63 into the method above it returns -$.37

      Do you know if this is an existing bug or am I doing something wrong?

      PS. using the NumberFormatter class works OK for the scenarios above.
