Number Format not saved

#1

I have a Numeric Label bound to a tag and want to change the display format to only one decimal place.

I make the change from #,##0.## to #,##0.# and the label displays the correct format. When I save the project it reverts back to #,##0.## in the ‘Number Format Pattern’ property setting.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

It sounds like the numeric label’s number format pattern property is bound. It is probably bound ta a tag’s number format attribute (this is set up automatically when you drop a tag onto a numberic label).

You cal tell when a property is bound because its name becomes bold in the property editor. You can either turn the binding off, or change the tag’s number format attribute that its bound to.

Hello Carl,

Thanks for this post, as I had made the same error in one of my projects, and not noticed the bound attribute.
