Numerical input strips zeros

Hello!

I have a problem with LimeSurvey Version 2.00+ Build 121127.

I have a numerical input field in a survey. If I input, for example, '1000' to the field and submit the survey, the db table has '1000.0000000000' but the 'Responses and statistics' in the LimeSurvey admin shows only '1'. I noticed that the the trailing zeros are always stripped when viewing the responses in 'Responses and statistics'.

Is this a bug or did I do something wrong?

Thanks, Jussi

On a related note: In my current survey (correctly: a census), I have mandatory 14x7 matrix of numeric fields. When I enter a perfectly valid zero(0) value, this zero will be deleted when I return from a later question group, and therefore this question will be marked as unanswered due to the empty value. Is this a bug or did I miss something?

Just found this in the tracker for a recently fixed bug (06859: Integer values displayed as floiting point numbers):

LimeSurvey: master be6e85bc
Timestamp: 2012-11-20 09:25:21
Author: Shnoulle
Committer: Denis Chenu

Dev: remove all ending 0 to numeric question type, and remove the . if it's at ending


Of course, trailing zeroes may be removed ONLY if they come AFTER the decimal sign!
This might be the cause for the bug reported by jussibus (not yet in the tracker).
Seems like the culprit is the indiscrimating rtrim() here in application/helpers/common_helper.php

I installed the fixes for issue #6980 by copying the changed source files over the existing ones, then restarting the web server, clearing caches and the like. No change for my case of zeroes vanishing from numeric arrays. Filed a report, issue #6997 , complete with survey to reproduce the error.

I hope someone can help, I need a fix really urgent. But sorry, I cannot donate, I am working in a governmental entity, and *donating* is a real pita.

Think LimeSurvey accept governmental donation.

You can contact Carsten directly to see what is possible.

Denis
PS: and you can do little personnal donation ;)
