Send values(10+E03) to Calculator

Recommended Posts



I am new to Autoit.

I am able to send my values to Calci using Autoit from VBA

But I am not able to send a value which is 1E+03 (This value is got from a variable in VBA).

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

AutoIt can send the value, but Calculator cannot understand it - you need to convert it first. :party:

Here is one way to do it:

$sData = "1E+03"

; Break the string into 2 parts either side of the "E"
$aData = StringSplit($sData, "E")

; Split the initial number int parts either side of the "."
$aNumber = StringSplit($aData[1], ".")

; If ther is no decimal point, then add one!
If $aNumber[0] = 1 Then $aData[1] &= ".0"

; Reconstruct the exponential number and convert it
$nNewNumber = Number($aData[1] & "E" & $aData[2])

; And here it is converted
ConsoleWrite($nNewNumber & @CRLF)

If you Send $nNewNumber, Calulator will accept it. :P

Ask if anything is unclear. :party:


Edit: Added some comments to the code.
