I wrote a loop that posted an accrued principal cycle to a listbox for a period of 10 years (10 loop cycles). The problem is: not only does the amount of the principal reconfigure for each loop cycle, but it does not truncate into a two decimal place holder as it should. I would like to use the ("F2") but I am not sure where to put it within the code. Here is what I have for the Calculate button event handler.
The user enter a number in a text box. what is the best way to overcome the big problem that in some countries 10,000 is written as 10.000 when you want to give the user the freedom to select its prefered format???
My user requests to change the . on the numpad to a when entering text in a multiline textbox.So I was thinking about the KeyDown event.To determine if the numpad . was pressed I can do something like this [code]But now how do I change the returned charachter as a , ? All e.Key... properties are ReadOnly. The KeyPress events let me change this by providing e.KeyChar, but in that event I can't check for the numpad .
I'm using the code below to convert the file size in bytes (test file is 31718 bytes) to KB (30.974609375 KB) but I want to display this to one decimal place (i.e. 30.9 KB). How would I do this in VB.NET?
I have a series of text boxes with numbers. They are an array called txtBF(0 to 16). I am trying to take the value that is to be displayed in the text box and make it have only one decimal place. I have tried using this code below but I keep getting an error message Run Time Error 13: Type Mismatch.
txtBF(11).text = Round(txtBF(11).text, 1) and I have also tried this txtBF(11).text = Math.Round(txtBF(11).text, 1)
After converting all degrees-->decimal, and decimal-->hours, how can i use Tan, Cos and Sin formula in vb.net? I want the user must enter an input (which it is a coordinat-->i already convert the degrees-->decimal value as suggested by stanav and paul.
The questions like this (i only calculate on paper but dont know how to implement in code):
Input user need to enter: -latitude local (e.g. 1.4875) -longitude local (e.g. 103.3883333)
How would I go about rounding up decimal numbers to the nearest 2 decimal places? For example $7.0000032 would be $7.01 In theory, VB would make it $7.00 but if it is > $7.00, I want it to reflect that to the nearest penny... so $3.0000001 would be $3.01
Maybe this is just a really basic question that everyone knows the answer to, and is why I couldn't find the answer. What I want to do is pretty simple. I want to declare a custom type that's just like a Single, except when you access the value, you get the value rounded to the second or third decimal place. Something like this:
Dim MyNumer as TwoDecimalNumber MyNumer = 1.124 Msgbox(MyNumber) 'This would pop up a box showing "1.12"
Problem: Using the sub routing below, when adding a value to another value the results eventually change from 2-decimal places to multiple decimal places.Basically, the amount stored should always only be 2 decimal places, because the values passed in are always 2 decimal places. Output from calling the sub routine multiple times.
Running total = 329430.75 New Withheld Amount = 710.79 Running total = 330141.54
As a workaround, I have a new routine that uses a custom round function to properly store only 2 decimal places - as the VB round function does not perform the type of rounding desired.I understand that we are removing the value from the dictionary and adding it back..
Can we use Content place holder within the head section of a master page? For example : <head runat="server"> <title>Untitled Page</title> <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder2" runat="server"> </asp:ContentPlaceHolder> <link href="StyleSheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> </head>
I have Dim InputVariable as Double InputVariable = Val(InputBox1.Text)
Now I am in Germany and we enter decimal values with a comma, like 53,52. When I enter this into my InputBox, the InputVariable shows only 53 after Val(). This is caused by entering the comma as decimal separator instead of the dot. When i enter it with a dot, like 53.52, the variable has the correct value. Is there a workaround, so that i can use the Val() function together with german input of comma decimal symbol and my variable gets assigned the correct decimal value instead of cutting it off?
My chemistry calculations program, written in Visual Studio 2008, VB.Net (Win XP), gives completely wrong results when a Comma is used as Decimal Symbol.The calculations are only correct with a Dot (.) as Decimal Symbol.How can I make the calculation results independent of the Decimal Symbol? (Dot or Comma)?(For example Excel calculates correctly with a Dot or Comma as Decimal Symbol)I have found an old thread adressing the same problem, but no simple and easy solution was given.
For some time I try to get the comma instead of the decimal point, but the labels I use won't display a comma. For some reason I don't understand, the msgbox() does the trick, but is useless in my application. This is my last desperate piece of code I tried but it also failed.
Expresserprijs = EuropluscolNL(ArrayCol, 2) - EuropluscolNL(ArrayCol, 1) ' All above are "Doubles" and are fed with data like 21,45 (with comma's that is) Decimaalteken = Expresserprijs ' Decimaalteken is a string MsgBox(Decimaalteken) [Code] .....
Is there a format string to format a decimal to 000000000,00. So first 9 digits, right padded with zeros if needed; a comma as fraction separator and two fraction digits. 0 => 00000000,00 12 => 00000012,00 987456,456 => 000987456,46 So something like myDecimal.ToString("D9") together with .ToString("F2").
I'm having some trouble converting a double to a string.I have a double value, like 43.64 and I need a string like this: "43.64"If I try to convert the double to a string I always get "43,64" what doesn't work for me..
In VB.Net, is there a way of auto-detecting the culture of a string representation of a number? I'll explain the situation:Our asp.net web site receives xml data feeds for boat data. Most of the time, the number format for the prices use either a simple non-formatted integer e.g. "999000". That's easy for us to process.Occaisionally, there are commas for thousands separators and periods for the decimal point. Also, that's fine as our data import understands this. Example "999,000.00".We're starting to get some data from France where some of the prices have been entered with the periods and thousands separators the other way around as that's the way it's done in many European countries. E.g. "999.000,00". This is where our system would interpret that as nine hundred and ninety nine pounds instead of the nine hundred and ninety nine thousand pounds that was intended.
I am trying to convert information stored in a file to a decimal (or ASCII) format, then write the contents of that file to a new file.
What I have is a list of files that are generated from a cash register. The documentation that was provided to me says that this particular file I am trying to work with has a length of 6, a width of 6, and that it's BCD type.
I've done quite a few google searches and can't seem to find a good solution. I know BCD numbers should be stored as 0000 format. But the problem I'm getting is when I read each part of the file (using my sr.read) I'm getting full numbers..and I am expecting the 0000 format. I'll get a 0, 0, 0, and then all of the sudden I"ll get a number that's 65,000..then I'll get a 34...and there doesn't seem to be any
I'm sure I'm doing something incorrect here, my knowledge of reading HEX, BCD, etc. is very minimal. I'm guessing it has to do with using a filestream, so I can use the fs.ReadByte() method..but when I tried that my program was literally chugging along for several minutes with no sign of ending.[code]...
Let's say I want to convert a Double x to a Decimal y. There's a lot of ways to do that:
1. var y = Convert.ToDecimal(x); // Dim y = Convert.ToDecimal(x) 2. var y = new Decimal(x); // Dim y = new Decimal(x) 3. var y = (decimal)x; // Dim y = CType(x, Decimal) 4. -- no C# equivalent -- // Dim y = CDec(x)
Functionally, all of the above do the same thing (as far as I can tell). Other than personal taste and style, is there a particular reason to choose one option over the other?
EDIT: This is the IL generated by compiling the three C# options in a Release configuration:
1. call valuetype [mscorlib]System.Decimal [mscorlib]System.Convert::ToDecimal(float64) --> which calls System.Decimal::op_Explicit(float64)
How to convert a whole number into decimal..For example 70 to .70 because there are some price in my system that needed to be calculated by grams for example $5 per grams... I am saving the price in my database as an integer..
I need to convert hex to a decimal in VB.NET. Found several examples in C#, but when I tried to convert to VB.NET I was not successful. An example of a hexadecimal number that I am trying to convert is"A14152464C203230304232323020572F544947455234352E".
The code below works until I try to convert the text box to a decimal. I think it might be because at the time of conversion the text box is empty. If thats the case, where could I do the conversion?[code]...
