Incorrect calculation.

Dear Experts,

I have 1 button and 4 SpinEdit-components on my form. The default
values of the 4 spinedits are: 3,9 - 4,4 - 6,7 - 8,3 in the Settings.Settings-file.
and a boolean called IsMGDL with default value false.

With this button-event below a user can switch between 2 modes:
1. If IsMGDL = true then multiple the values of the spinedits with 18.
    And the outcome has to be changed to an integer-value.
2. If IsMGDL = false then devide the values of the spinedits with 18
    And the outcome has to be changed to a double-value.

        private void btnSwUnit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL = !Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL;
            Properties.Settings.Default.Save();
            if (Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL)
            {
                btnSwUnit.Text = "Switch to mmol/l";
                lblSwUnit.Text = "Glucose Units: mg/dl";

                int intVal1 = Convert.ToInt32(spdMinVal.EditValue) * 18;
                spdMinVal.EditValue = intVal1.ToString();
                int intVal2 = Convert.ToInt32(spdMinRng.EditValue) * 18;
                spdMinRng.EditValue = intVal2.ToString();
                int intVal3 = Convert.ToInt32(spdMaxRng.EditValue) * 18;
                spdMaxRng.EditValue = intVal3.ToString();
                int intVal4 = Convert.ToInt32(spdMaxVal.EditValue) * 18;
                spdMaxVal.EditValue = intVal4.ToString();
            }
            else
            {
                btnSwUnit.Text = "Switch to mg/dl";
                lblSwUnit.Text = "Glucose Units: mmol/l";

                double doubleVal1 = Convert.ToDouble(spdMinVal.EditValue) / 18;
                spdMinVal.EditValue = doubleVal1.ToString();
                double doubleVal2 = Convert.ToDouble(spdMinRng.EditValue) / 18;
                spdMinRng.EditValue = doubleVal2.ToString();
                double doubleVal3 = Convert.ToDouble(spdMaxRng.EditValue) / 18;
                spdMaxRng.EditValue = doubleVal3.ToString();
                double doubleVal4 = Convert.ToDouble(spdMaxVal.EditValue) / 18;
                spdMaxVal.EditValue = doubleVal4.ToString();
            }
        }

Open in new window



But when I have the 3,9 - 4,4 - 6,7 - 8,3 in the spinedits and press the button
it gives an outcome of  72, 72,126, 144 while it should be: 70, 79, 121, 149.
I don't know why this his happening!

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

you need to round after the multiplication instead of before
4 * 18 is 72  where as 3,9 * 72 rounded is 70

I think you are right. I thank you for at least show me what the problem is.
Because I had no idea. But the spinedit is a component from devexpress.
so I get an error with your solution.

Operator '*' cannot be applied to operands of type 'object' and 'int'.

If you can solve it (because i don't know if its a devexpress related issue)
then tell me and I reward you the points.
