Math(Division by10)

9 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a script that will output a number called $sum between 1 and 100 and then I need to divide that number by 10. All is working fine but when a number is (10,20,30,40..) it will give me only the first digit of the remainder. Any way for it to show 7.0 when 70 divided by 10?

Jat421,

Take a look at Round in the Help file. :)

Edit: In fact do not because it does not do what I thought it did with trailing zeroes! :>

New edit: You need StringFormat:

$nNumber = 70 / 10

ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("%.1f", $nNumber) & @CRLF)

$nNumber = 74 / 10

ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("%.1f", $nNumber) & @CRLF)

By appending it. 7.0 = 7 to AutoIt so you'll have to check for rounded numbers using Round (If $sum = Round($sum)) and then prepend '.0' yourself.

Use StringFormat to make sure it has as many characters after the decimal point as you want it to, with zeros if needed.

ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("%.2f", "7") & @lf)
; this format string will give you 2 characters after the decimal point, zeros added. change it to 1f if you only want/need 1 character after the decimal

Doesn't seem to be work for me. What am I doing wrong

$sum = 70

MsgBox(0,"test", $sum)

$sum = $sum/10

StringFormat("%.2f", $sum)

MsgBox(0,"test", $sum)

$sum = StringFormat("%.2f", $sum)

You weren't formatting the string $sum, you were just creating a string with the contents of $sum and then not assigning the new string to anything.
