Use the string function

The string function converts a variable value into text, so you can use it in a Tedds field that only accepts string arguments. You can use the string function with Input fields, Show fields, Message fields and Log fields.

Note:

The following only applies to Tedds for Word.

The particular syntax of a string function is:

string($variable name$, $format$, $unit$)

Parameters:

$variable name$ is the name of the variable that you want to include in the string, or a calculation that gives you the variable value.

$format$ is the format that you want to apply to the calculated value.

$unit$ is the unit in which the variable is to be displayed. Units are optional.

Examples of the string function

Message("The minimum Area of steel required is "+string(A_{s},"F0","mm^(2)")+" mm^2 ","Note")

In the example, the string function ((A_{s},"F0","mm^(2)")) is used for adding values within text.

The + signs tell Tedds for Word to add the parts together to create the text that goes into the dialog.

Input("Input the bar diameter - minimum "+string(D_{min},"F0","mm")+" mm","Dia","mm", string(D_{min},"F0","mm"),2)

In the example, the first string function is used for adding values within the text. The second string function is used on its own without other text, and it calculates a default value that is set in the input dialog.
