however on android devices or in the browser pipes for currency or number format work just fine.

I recently converted one of my old ionic1 directives to a pipe to use with ionic2 and it’s working fine in iOS, Browser, Android. It’s only a simple pipe though that takes a time value in ms and returns a formatted time value in MM:SS format.

Here’s the code if that helps at all.


But if you try something simple like

{{someNumber | currency : 'eur' : true :'.2-2' }}

does that work for you on iOS as well?

{{someNumber | currency : ['eur', true, '.2-2'] }}


With your code I only get a Invalid currency code: EUR,true,.2-2

[SOLVED] Currency pipe in Ionic2

pff… if you don’t know how use array, then I can’t help you. Sorry.


Bit in the current angular2 documentation it says:

We add parameters to a pipe by following the pipe name with a colon ( : ) and then the parameter value (e.g., currency:‘EUR’). If our pipe accepts multiple parameters, we separate the values with colons (e.g. slice:1:5)


I don’t currently have a pipe passing parameters, I am working on one shortly for filtering lists, will update once I have played with it.


(Ionic 2)
This simple pipe isn’t working in IOS for me:
date:“dd MMM HH:mm”

{{order.timestamp | date:"dd MMM HH:mm"}}

works in browsers but not IOS.


works in browsers and IOS.

Found a fix. Basically, add this script tag to index.html


Fixed the issue for me. What a pain! Thanks :slight_smile:
