Possible bug in subtraction.

3 posts in this topic

Can someone tell me why the following script outputs the wrong answer?

If you input 1234567 in the first inputbox and 1 in the second inputbox the output is 1.23457e+006

But in beta v3.1.1.127 the output was 1234566 (which was/is correct).

I saw this at:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=136074

Fixed : Conversion from floating point to string now shows less precision to prevent displaying unexpected values. (by Valik)

I am not sure if that is what caused this problem, but I hope it will be fixed.

Or better yet, I hope it is something I am overlooking.

GUICreate( "Subtraction Example", 300, 300, -1, -1, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW)

$Seven_Digits = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Seven Digit Number:", 60, 60, 100, 20)
$Seven_Digits = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 160, 55, 80, 20)

$One_Digit = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("One Digit Number:", 60, 120, 100, 20)
$One_Digit = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 160, 115, 60, 20)

$Subtract_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Subtract", 120, 160, 80, 30)

    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        $lblResult = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Result:", 60, 220, 100, 20)
        GuiCtrlCreateInput($Result, 160, 215, 100, 20)

There is an issue in the 3.1.1.128 ..... will very likely be fixed/reverted in 3.1.1.129.
