decimal to fractional or feet & inches?

Recommended Posts

Is there a VS function that I'm just not seeing that changes decimal (a Real) to a character string in either fractional inches and or feet and inches notation?

I am hoping to present the value of an internal variable via a static parameter (String) in fractional inches or feet & inches if the user has selected that setting for their dimensioning.

Try Num2StrF();

It will format your number to the current document units format. If your document units are not in Ft-In, you will have to set the document units to Feet-Inches temporarily before making the conversion, then set it back when done.


If you need help changing document units, please write back.
