Hi Tim, yep it's me again. Another small bug I think.....seems the bid value is not getting consistently transferred from the "bid view" to the "bid now" view in certain circumstances.

In the Bid view, when the bid is 1000 or higher, the "Your Bid" field displays in with a comma thousands separator and a decimal, like "1,000.00".

When I click "Bid Now" to get to the "bidnow" view, the bid field only displays the digits before the comma. So a bid entry of "44,000.00" becomes "44" in the bidnow view. The user has to manually add the three zeros.

If I manually remove the comma from the field in the "bid" view and click "bid now", the bid value appears correctly in the "bidnow" view, except without the decimal point and cent digits. ("44000.00" becomes "44000")

If I manually remove the comma, and enter cent values so the field is like "1000.50", only the first digit of the cent value comes through ("1000.50" becomes "1000.5").

I know the user can manually override any of these, but this could be very confusing to people. How can we get the formatting to be more consistent? And is there a way for me to use only whole dollar amounts for the bidding?

Fantastic. I'll wait until after you've had a chance to look at the display field/filter issue on our site before I do the upgrade, then I'll let you know how it goes.
