DriveWorks Pro 15: Decimal Places [send feedback...]

Decimal Places

The number of decimal places accepted can be set for the following control types:

  • Numeric Text Box Control.
  • Measurement Text Box Control
  • Spin Button

The Decimal Places property controls the number of decimal places shown in the control. If the value is set to a negative value, DriveWorks automatically determines the required number of decimal places.

Property Type: Static

Default Value: -1

The default value of -1 will automatically set the required number of decimal places. For example if 10.002 is entered into the control it will be set to 3 decimal places.

Hierarchical Reference: ControlName.DecimalPlaces

To Change the Default Value

Ensure the property is a static property (It will display the gray orb alongside the property name)

The default value of the static property can be changed by typing the required value directly into the property field.

  1. Click in the property for the control to be changed.
  2. Type the required value directly into the property field.
