I am in a loop and I want to increment ProgressBar.Position by 0.42

But when I am trying to do so as fellow:

ProgressBar.Position := ProgressBar.Position + 0.42;

I am getting [Pascal Error] ... Incompatible types: 'Integer' and 'Extended'

How can I solve this?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Because the values that can be associated with the ProgressBar.Position can only be whole numbers (1,2,3,...)

you could set Progressbar1.Max to 10000 instead of 100
and  do
progressbar.position := progressbar.position + 42;

b) you could keep the value i another extended variabnle, update that instead, but only show the rounded value on the progressbar

   realposition: double;

realposition := 0
progressbar.position := 0;

realposition := realposition + 0.42;
ProgressBar.Position := Round(realposition);  // eg. if realposition was 0.42, progressbar would show 0,if it was 1.26 the progressbar would show 1
