[CLOSED] Data Label Format Rounding Issue
This seems simple, and I have read about customizing data label formats on the forum and in the documentation, but perhaps I am missing something.

Here is the snippet of code I'm working with:

setTextFormatPreset(getDataText(),-1);
setTextFormatPattern(getDataText(),"$#.#")

I'm using a custom format because I want to show my amounts that are in billions as $1.2B. The challenge is that I have several values a less than a billion. So, what AppStudio is currently doing to my graph is giving me $911.4M instead of $0.9B. Is there a way to add the decimal place? I've been reading about PresetNumberFormats. When I try to use preset value 10 or 11, I get $0B. That's definitely not what I need. Thoughts?

The graph fex is very small, so I want to keep the fix simple.
