scale up and down

I have a global counter and want to refer to it later on to control the counter value I have two buttons on the form one plus one minus and I would like to go up and down from 0 to .5 dependant upon which button i pressed but in increments of .1

the code increments ok but if i traverse down when i get to zero it fails and then the next negative it gets stuck on -.01

not sure why.




Private Sub BtnVNomMinus_Click()

     Select Case VNomCount
     
     Case 0 To 0.4
        VNomCount = VNomCount - 0.1
     Case 0.5
        VNomCount = VNomCount - 0.1
     Case -0.4 To -0.1
       VNomCount = VNomCount - 0.1
     Case -0.5
     
     
     
     
     End Select
      LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount
  
  
  
  

End Sub

Private Sub BtnVNomPlus_Click()
    Select Case VNomCount
     Case 0 To 0.4
    VNomCount = VNomCount + 0.1
     Case 0.5
 
     Case -0.4 To 0
    VNomCount = VNomCount + 0.1
     Case -0.5
     VNomCount = VNomCount + 0.1
     
     
     
     End Select
      LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount
End Sub

vnomcount is a double.

debugging shows vnomcount as -.1

yet the statement: Case -0.4 To -0.1

does not get run it drops out of the case

If VNomCount > -0.5 Then
   VNomCount = VNomCount - 0.1
End If

LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount  'You can put this inside the If block if always shows the value of VNomCount

It now goes up and down I amended the plus routine to        If VNomCount < 0.5 Then
   VNomCount = VNomCount + 0.1
End If
     
     
      LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount

after your code suggestion BUT zero doesnt appear

it goes -.5 -.4 -.3 -.2 -.1 2.7 .1 .2 .3 .4 .5


not sure how to resolve that zero should be zero and mean no variance the increments are variance that will be added to another figure

vb sometimes doesn't show accurate results when computing in double. As a workaround you could round the values.

i.e. Change
LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount

Open in new window

To
LblVNomCount.Caption = Round(VNomCount, 1)

Btw, the value of VNomCount isn't actually 2.7. It is something like 2.77555E-17 or 2.77555 X 10^17 which is very close to 0. You only see 2.7 on the label probably because the size of label is too small and you only see the 1st 3 characters.

Is VNomCount a control?  I assume so

How about this

Private Sub BtnVNomMinus_Click()

           Select Case VNomCount

           if vnomcount = 0.5 then exit sub

      VNomCount = VNomCount - 0.1

           LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount
 
End Sub

Private Sub BtnVNomPlus_Click()
       
           if vnomcount = 0 then exit sub

      VNomCount = VNomCount + 0.1

           LblVNomCount.Caption = VNomCount
End Sub

VNomCount is a global variable that is controlled by a plus and a minus button so that I can set the variance I want in the sub records

my subform filter will be
strFilter = strFilter & " and " & "((abs([ClientNomDerived] - Forms!cw_client_matching_form.[NOM CC].[value])<=ReturnvNomcount()) Or (isnull([ClientNomDerived])))"

ReturnvNomcount() this returns the value of the global variable so 0 must be a valid value so if my client nom is 1.6 i can filter on my value of 1.6

BUT i need variance that can be adjusted as sometimes a client has a nom of 1.5 but our data holds it as 1.6

the methods are tested in as much that I have done this for bhp and for cc but these were whole integers.

the global variable VNomCount is a double which could be where the issue lay.

but i am not sure hence my visit here.

Since you will be using VNomCount on other parts of your program, the you should apply the round on this function instead.

VNomCount = Round(VNomCount - 0.1, 1)
