Can you show 2 prices for ACBC summed price attribute

I want to show a monthly price in addition to the regular price. Is there a way to do this? It would need to be done for each component listed on the BYO then carried through to the screener/tournament. The closest thing I found on the forum was this, which I've edited but it doesn't work properly.

The monthly price being one-twelfth the regular price, right?
Probably will be 1/12th not 100% sure if we will use monthly or some other fraction

I've updated the code to create a second price, one-twelfth the original price:

    var params = {
        priceRow: 4,
        persons: 12,
        label: 'Price per month:',
        currencySymbol: '$',
        currencySymbolBefore: true
    // BYO
    if ($('.acbc_byo').length) {
        $('.acbc_byo .total_label_cell').html($('.acbc_byo .total_label_cell').html() + '<br/>' + params.label);
        $('.acbc_byo .total_price tbody').append($('.acbc_byo .total_price tbody tr').clone());
        var perPerson = $('.acbc_byo .total_price tbody > tr:last-child input');
        $(perPerson).attr('id', '').attr('name', '');
    // Screener / Choice Task
    if ($('.acbc_screener, .acbc_choicetask').length) {
        // Add per-person row
        var priceRow = $('#[% QuestionName() %]_div .inner_table > tbody > tr:nth-child(' + params.priceRow + ')');
        // Per-person label
        var perPersonRow = $('#[% QuestionName() %]_div .inner_table > tbody > tr:nth-child(' + (params.priceRow + 1) + ')');
        $(perPersonRow).find('.label_text_cell .label_text').text(params.label);
        // Per-person values
        $(perPersonRow).find('.level_text_cell .level_text').each(function(){
            var price = $(this).text().replace(params.currencySymbol, '').replace(',', '');
            price = Number(price) / params.persons;
            price = Math.round(price);
            if (params.currencySymbolBefore) {
                price = params.currencySymbol + price;
            else {
                price += params.currencySymbol;
function SSI_CustomGraphicalRadiobox(graphicalObj, inputObj) {
    var params = {
        persons: 12
    var list = $('input[name=hid_list_[% QuestionName() %]]').val().split(',').map(Number);
    var total = 0;
        var level = SSI_GetValue('[% QuestionName() %]_' + attr);
        if (level) {
            var priceText = $('#[% QuestionName() %]_' + attr + '_' + level).closest('tr').find('.acbc_byo_price_text').text();
            if (priceText) {
                var price = Number(priceText.match(/([0-9]+)/)[0]);
                if (/^\(-/.test(priceText)) {
                    price *= -1;
                total += price;
    $('.acbc_byo .total_price tbody > tr:last-child input').val(Math.round(total / params.persons));

Line 4 should still be updated with which attribute is the summed price.

I'm no longer interested in any spaces as a part of the currency symbol.  I'd be happy to get the symbol to appear after the price correctly.  Below is my code for using the € symbol and having it appear after the price.  In the ACBC settings, the Price symbol is set to "€" (no space).

Line 39
var regex = /\(([+-])([0-9.,]*)€\)$/;

Line 71
var regex = /\(([+-]) ([0-9.,]*)€ or /;

Line 90
var regex = /([0-9.,]*)€\$/;

Line 101
var regex = /^[0-9.,]*€\$/;

Line 101
var regex = /^[0-9.,]*€\$/;

And does line 103 also need a modification?
You've got a good start.

On line 39, you've accidentally removed the space character from my regular expression.  Lighthouse Studio prints out a space between the plus / minus character and the number itself; we need to account for that in the regular expression.

/\(([+-]) ([0-9.,]*)€\)$/

On line 90 and line 101, remove the backslash.  Those are intended as the special regular expression character, not a literal dollar symbol character.


Line 103's regular expression should be this:

That did it, thanks.

In case the client wants the space between the price and the symbol, I tried getting that to work as well.  I realized that the ACBC setting wouldn't save a space, so I set that to be "&nbsp;€".   And for the code, I inserted a space before each € on the regular expressions in lines 39, 71, 90, 101, and 103.  But that didn't work.  I also tried &nbsp; and '', and those didn't work.
Instead of trying to match the "&nbsp;" exactly with your regular expression, you could just use "\s*" like this:

That works, except on the Unacceptables the monthly price is showing as 0. Ex. "489 € or 0 € per month".

Here is what I have for line 90.
var regex = /([0-9.,]*)\s*€$/;
