hi, how can i limit number accurency , for example i have floating point number  (LETS SAY dOUBLE TYPE)
and i want that the numbers will be just 3digit after the floating point
so number like this  2.234789753453e-16 will be consider as zero .
and from the oposite number like 4.456 will stay in his Current Value

The easiest and most simple way is to use a mask edit if it is non DB data or to set the Displayformat and EditFormat of the field if it is a DB item.

The format you'll probably want is something like:

#.000

I hope this helps.

cheers,

Zac
