 This is straight from my program . ' lcd_out uses com3 to LCD+ Dim nonv as single Dim geix as single Dim om as string Call getadc(pin20, nonv) geix = 0.6 * nonv - 1.5 om = fmt(geix, 2) ' Do i use this correctly ?? Call putqueuestr(lcd_out, om) ' This hangs the bx-24 ! Just need to clip the geix from 0.2432523 to 0.243 .... Thanks in advance ! > > >>... a is like 0.62571235712356 [] How can i convert a to 0.62... >> >> > >One way to produce a formatted display string is with Fmt(a, 2).
