WTF! 8e-005 ?

Recommended Posts


i didnt wanna post the code but i guess i have too.... why does the below script return 1-9e-005 when $test1 < 1 ...

instead of returning "0.0001928" or sumthing it returns "8e-005" or sumthing else ... then when $test1 > 1 it returns decimals again ... .00004363 , 0.23252 etc

just run the script below and move the mouse

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI")

$test = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("0",  10, 190, 100, 15, -1, $WS_EX_STATICEDGE)

GUISetState ()

$test1 = 0

While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

Func _Set()
   $test1 = $test1 + .01
   GUICtrlSetData($test, $test1 * .00062 + .00001)

Func _MousePos()
   $MousePos_1 = MouseGetPos()
   $MousePos_2 = MouseGetPos()
   If $MousePos_2[0] <> $MousePos_1[0] AND $MousePos_2[1] <> $MousePos_1[1] Then

Because the number is so small, it's not writing all the 0's

8e-005 is 8 with the decimale placed moved left 5 times:

.00008 = 8e-005

From the help file:

Signed value having the form [ - ]d.dddd e [sign]ddd where d is a single decimal digit, dddd is one or more decimal digits, ddd is exactly three decimal digits, and sign is + or -.

as for a solution...

GUICtrlSetData($test, StringFormat("%.7f",$test1 * .00062 + .00001))

*Edit I also changed:

If $MousePos_2[0] <> $MousePos_1[0] Or $MousePos_2[1] <> $MousePos_1[1] Then _Set()
