Storing currency in a variable?

  • Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to store real money currency in a global variable, then use a text object to display the currency, and on "every tick", subtract and add to the global variable with decimals 0.10 etc as you win win or lose.

    I have been able to take the currency from my database and it shows correctly in a text field, but when i set a text object to display the global variable, it only shows 10, but it should show 10.00.

    Regards,

  • All I can think of is maybe multiply the number by a 1000 when storing it in the global variable. Then, when you set the text, use float(globalVariable/1000).

  • Hey thanks for the reply and sorry for the late response, but better late than sorry right.

    I didn't have to do anything of that btw, i just had to assign float to the balance when i assign the variable and it updated the currency automatically.
