I fill in a text box 9txt_textbox) with a variable (var_textbox)
using this function.

txt_textbox = Format(var_textbox, "####.#")

The variable var_textbox is declared as single.

Now my problem. If the variable is set to zero , than on the screen it comes up with an entry like

  .     That means a single dot is visible in the textbox.
How do I have to programme to show actuakky the 0 value?  Or I would not mind neither an empty textbox with no dot at all instead

    txt_textbox = 0
else
    txt_textbox = Format(var_textbox, "####.#")
end if
that should do it

Try this ...

Format(var_textbox, "###0.#")

if you want '0.' or this

Format(var_textbox, "###0.0")

if you want '0.0'
