Discrepancy with AsString

Post by sotos » Tue May 07, 2019 4:27 pm


I have a decimal field named #WEBA_ORDERANOUNT with length 15 and 2 decimals.

The problem is that #orderAmount.AsString and #WEBA_ORDERANOUNT.AsString gives different values

i.e. (within a server module):

Define_Com Class(#WEBA_ORDERANOUNT) Name(#orderAmount)
#orderAmount = 0.20
#orderAmount.AsString -> 0.2


#WEBA_ORDERANOUNT.AsString -> 0.20

Why is this happening, I was expecting identical results.

I suspect this is because the define com is simply inheriting the field type and not the edit code attached to the field.

How are you determining what the field is?

Or are you sending both fields back and viewing the json output?

Or are you going by what is showing up on a screen in the browser?

What does the field definition look like?

This might not actually be a bug, just a misunderstanding of how rdmlx works (or not).

A reproducible example (quick export with field definition) is not a bad idea...allow the devs to export the reasons.
