Get total sum of a list

3 posts in this topic

I got a list with the following number:

408, 85, 1.030, 1.105, 364, 89, 89, 117, 69, 25, 97, 221

The list reads it from a text.txt file that looks like this: 408|85|1.030|1.105|364|89|89|117|69|25|97|221  

this the code I use:

list name = $list2

Local $count = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($list2)
Local $item, $total = 0
For $index = 0 to $count-1
   $item = _GUICtrlListBox_GetText($list2, $index)
   $total += Number($item)
Next
Msgbox(0,"", $total)

I should get a number like: 3699

but in the msgbox I get a really large strange number like: 1566.135

how is that possible?

Arclite86,

I suspect that you intend "1.030" to be read as "one thousand and thirty" - AutoIt sees it as "one point 030". ;)

The solution? Use Stringreplace to change the delimiter before AutoIt reads it as a number: :)

$total += Number(StringReplace($item, ".", ","))
M23

Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Spoiler

ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area
