Decimals missing when using calculated values for attributes in RTC

KB 20 (123) | asked Jun 13 '14, 4:50 p.m.

I am working on automating a calculated value (Final Average) in RTC -- the whole number calculations are working fine, but when the average is a decimal, the answer only comes out as a whole number and does not display all the decimal places. So I am basically missing the actual answer.

I am doing this utilizing javascript. Can anyone tell me how I can modify the javascript to display the entire answer -- whether it is a whole number or a decimal number? Are there any settings to be changed in RTC for the attributes or there are certain types(decimal, long, small string, etc.) of attributes that can show the entire decimal value?

Thank you for your help in advance.

if you are with RTC401 or later, you may want to use decimal type:

and referring to the sample javascript on how to declare/covert the variable:
