 numbers counting up in parenthesis (expression) on Mar 7, 2012 at 6:06:00 pm

Hello everybody
i m currently using an expression to have a percentage count up to a specific number. I ve got that part figured out, but i would like the percentage amount to be in between parenthesis like this : (5.07%)
here is the expression i m using. If anyone knows how i can alter it to fit my needs, that would be great.

numDecimals = 2;
commas = true;
dollarSign = true;
beginCount = 0
endCount = 5.03
dur = 4;

t = time - inPoint;
s = linear (t, 0, dur, beginCount, endCount).toFixed(numDecimals);

suffix = "";
if (s[0] == "-"){
prefix = "-";
s = s.substr(1);
}
if(dollarSign) suffix += "%";

if (commas){
decimals = "";
if (numDecimals > 0){
decimals = s.substr(-(numDecimals + 1));
s = s.substr(0,s.length - (numDecimals + 1));
}
outStr = s.substr(-s.length, (s.length-1)%3 +1);
for (i = Math.floor((s.length-1)/3); i > 0; i--){
outStr += "," + s.substr(-i*3,3);
}
outStr + decimals + suffix ;
}else{
s + suffix;
}

Well if no one can decipher that...arent expressions just java or something? You could try to ask over at devshed.
