Human readable format

Hi,
Quick question.
Is there a way to shorten long numbers into a human readable format, in sitemap config? like making 1300 Byte to 1,3kB, or 5600m to 5,6km.

Thanks!

This will get you part way there. But to do conversions like you are asking for you will need to either use a Rule and a Proxy Item to store the converted value for display on your sitemap or see if you can get a JavaScript Transformation to work in the Item’s label.

Thanks,
I solved it with javascript.

Bytes.js

(function formatBytes(a){
var d = 2;
e=[“b”,“kB”,“mB”,“gB”,“tB”,“pB”,“eB”,“zB”,“yB”];
if(0==a)return"0 “+e[0];
var c=1e3;
var f=Math.floor(Math.log(a)/Math.log©);
return parseFloat((a/Math.pow(c,f)).toFixed(d))+” "+e[f];
})(input)

sitemap:
Text item=XXXlabel=“Size [JS(bytes.js):%s]”

Very rough, but it works!
