To limit a number to two decimal places, do you use FloorTo in the equation? Also, while we’re on the subject, what do float and float in range do?
How do you limit a number to two decimal places? Also, what are float and float in range?
The wiki “expression reference” is an excellent resource. I keep it linked.
You can use ceilTo(), floorTo() or roundTo()
Round up, down or to nearest nth decimal.
As far as float() and floatInRange(), do you mean randomFloat() and randomFloatInRange() ?
If so, they pick a random floating number either from a default implied 0 to a number or from a number to a number.
Hello Keith. Yes, I use that reference page frequently. I think my question is a bit vague. What I am saying is, if I want to limit my number to only having two decimal places, how do I indicate that in the FloorTo formula? I see that the FloorTo has two numbers. Let’s say I have a GlobalVariable(Health), how do I use that in this formula to limit it to two decimal places? FloorTo(GlobalVariable(Health???
Anywhere you want to reduce it to just a certain number of places you would use one of the expressions with the value or variable and the number of places. I frequently use them when displaying a number in a text object. I’ll keep the variable as it’s full number and then use one of the expressions when setting it to a text object.
It behaves like any expression, add the expression anywhere a number is used, put in the value, formula or variable followed by a comma and the number of places.
OK perfect. I was suspecting that the # of decimal places was the second number. Thank you.
