Hi;
I have a method that is of type
public Float get Discount()

I want to keep  a counter that gets all the discount value and if the value is greater than 100 it will flag an aerror.
Hence

Float counter = new Float(0)

for(int i=0;i< Arr.length;i++)
counter = counter + Arr[i].getDiscount()
where Arr[i].getDiscount return type is float.

What is the best way to do this.

float total = 0.0;

// (inloop)
total += Arr[i].getDiscount()

Thanks- I just re tried using primitives and converted the getDiscount to a floatValue and works fine!
