Hi!

I have a string value that can look somewhat like this:
"410.13456"
"1024.7940"
or something like that.

What I want to do is, if there's a "." in the string, remove everything behind it. Ie. "410.13456" will become "410".

How do I do this the simplest way possible.

Regards,
David

int dot = s.indexOf(".");
if (dot!=-1)
{
   s = s.substring(0, dot-1);
}

or maybe:

s = s.split("\.")[0];

The first one works if you put it like this:

s=s.substring(0,dot);

Thanks!
