CB formatting numbers
« on: September 29, 2011, 09:26:51 AM »
How dose one format a double number for printing to a file to get
xx.0000 instead of xx.000000000000 in CBasic?
Thanks

Tap= 1.11111111111111
Tap= Format(tap,"00.0000")  ' Formatting the Variable
NOW Tap=1.1111

You can also format on the fly

as   Msgbox("Tap= ") & Format("Tap,"00.0000")

The message will say  Tap= 1.1111

That is one way, (;-) TP

You are lucky I am working on new screens and cool new plasma functions.  I have to use format a lot to make it all look neat.

Just wait until I don't work on them for a short while, I will forget half of it and THEN you can stump me easy enough.

BUT I did create some neat new manuals to reference. (;-)
