Mathcad automation: passing a variable to Mathcad

Mathcad automation: passing a variable to Mathcad

Mathcad automation: passing a variable to Mathcad

Hi all,
I am building an application in VB.NET that calls a mathcad worksheet to solve a set of equations. Based on the example in the Developper's Reference I used the SetValue and GetValue command to handle the inputs and outputs. Now, it actually works fine, as long as the inputs are integers. Whenever I try to input a float nothing happens. I've tried to passe a float number as string using both "." and "," as decimal separator and I've tried to pass the value as Double too. Anyone has an idea of how to solve this problem?



RE: Mathcad automation: passing a variable to Mathcad

Thanks for the tip Fawkes. if I can't get it to work the way I want I'll probably try to edit the XML file. I hope I won't need to though as I'm merely trying to use the automation features as they are intended to be used! I've posted in the Mathcad Collaboratory as suggested by IRstuff. Otherwise any help is appreciated. I'm working with Mathcad 13 by the way.

Finally the issue has been resolved. The problem was that in my regional settings the comma was used as decimal separator, but couldn't be interpreted by Mathcad.
