There are a couple of formatting controls in CAESES if you put a floating point number into a string. Here is a simple example for the toString() command that uses the global formatting and a given precision:


The command asString() gives you a bit more control. If you like to change the field width, precision or the fill character, then you can use this one:

string myString( asString(number,field_width,precision,fill_char) )

With this, it is easy to write (export) files with a custom format or create custom labels for the 3D view.


I have attached a project where you can try it out. There is also some console output that shows the results.
