Hi all,
Quick question...how would I go about removing everything after a decimal point is encountered using CF?

Basically I have a value being returned from a query that is in floating point form, ie: 10.0
I need to only display this variable's whole number, ie: 10

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks,
Rick

Hi bluskyGuy,
Hi bluskyGuy,

Hi mostym,
<cfset YourList = "element1,element2,element3">


<cfoutput>
#ListFirst(YourList)#
</cfoutput>

you can do something like that... and if you have different delim then you can specify them in your string
Name: ListFirst()
Usage: ListFirst(list [, delimiters ])
Description: ListFirst() will return the first element in your list.

#numberFormat("10.00", "________")#

is a better option, the data is not a list but a number..

Try Fix() Or Int() functions available in CF

<CFOUTPUT>
#fix(10.00)#
#int(10.00)#
</CFOUTPUT>

as simple as it can be :)

Hi pinaldave,

Umm, there is a function for this, int take the integer portion of a number, ie drop the decimals, no reason to treat this as a list.

<cfset value="10.25" />
<cfoutput>#int(value)#</cfoutput>

anandkp,

Really if he agrees this is a good solution then you should have gotten the points. I think to often people just accept the first answer that works, regardless if it's the best answer.

I was just pointing out after he said the first solution worked that this wasn't the best solution.
