ValF()

Syntax

Result.f = ValF(String$)
Description
Converts a string into a float value. The string must be a float in decimal or in scientific (exponent) format. The number parsing stops at the first non numeric character.

Parameters

String$ The string to convert.

Return value

The float value of the string.

Remarks

Strings holding an integer can also be converted with Val() and 64-bit floats with ValD() (with more accuracy than ValF()).

Example

  Debug ValF("10.75")     ; will display 10.75
  Debug ValF("1.2345e+3") ; will display 1234.5
