CULNG


Converts numeric or string expression to Ulong

Syntax:
declare function Culng ( byval expression as datatype ) as ulong

Type typename
End Type

Usage:
result = Culng( numeric expression )
result = Culng( string expression )
result = Culng( user defined type )

Parameters:
expression
a numeric, string, or pointer expression to cast to a Ulong value
datatype
any numeric, string, or pointer data type
typename
a user defined type

Return Value:
A Ulong value.

Description:
The Culng function rounds off the decimal part and returns a 32 bit Ulong value. The function does not check for an overflow. The name can be explained as 'Convert to Unsigned LoNG'.

If the argument is a string expression, it is converted to numeric by using Valuint or Valulng.

Examples:
' Using the CULNG function to convert a numeric value

'Create an UNSIGNED LONG variable
Dim numeric_value As ULONG

'Convert a numeric value
numeric_value = CULng(300.23)

'Print the result = 300
Print numeric_value
Sleep
