Hey guys...

another question and hopefully another quick perfect answer :)

i have 2 attributes and wanna display them as text...

when i use it without TextSubStr like attribute game.a is 7 and attribute game.b is 3
attribute.a/attribute.b
I can display it and the output would be 2,333333333
i wanna limit it to 5 digits

so my idea is
textSubStr(attribute.a/attribute.b,0,5)

i also tried
textSubStr((attribute.a/attribute.b),0,5)

but I get invalid expression... is it correct that I can not make any calculation inside the textsubstr ?

any other ideas how to limit it?

thanks and merry xmas

    Umm...not sure textSubStr takes number inputs. What are you trying to achieve with that expression?

    How about just using a Display Text, with:

    prec(attribute.a/attribute.b,5)

    That will give you 5 digits past the decimal point.

    there are so many actions I don't know.. thanks it works fine :)

    I just have a simple number / number calculation and depending on the input there comes kind of 0.33333333333 and I just wanted to limit it..
    with price(x,y) it works...

    thaaaaaank you
