Numeric format in the basicdatalogger2
« on: March 19, 2017, 07:16:47 PM »
Any idea of how to control/change the numeric format for the collection members in the basicdatalogger2?
I'm getting the values from the PLC in floating point format with >5 decimal places, but only want to round/save them in the log file with one or two decimal places.

Thanks.

If this is the only BasicDataLogger2 you are using in the project, the easiest would be to modify the code to always use 2 place.

- In Solution Explorer, expand down the AdvancedHMIControls project
- Expand down the \Components folder
- Right click BasicDataLogger.vb and select View Code
- Go to line 229 and edit the code like this:
Code: [Select]
StringToWrite &= "," & CDbl(item.LastValue).ToString("0.00")

Thank you for your reply Archie.
I'm using two instances of Basicdatalogger2 to write/update two separate log files.
Will try your suggestion as soon as I can.
