SetDecimalPoints(numBaseValue,numDecimalPoints)
 numBaseValue
 The base value of the range of real numbers. For
negative values, the range includes all real numbers less than or
equal to that value. For positive values, the range includes all
real numbers greater than or equal to that number. (You can set the
other limit of the range by calling the function again with a new
set of parameters.)
 numDecimalPoints
 The number of decimal places to be displayed, for
the range of real numbers specified by numBaseValue.
Notes
If you call this function more than once with
different parameters for each call, then you can build a virtual
table of format settings. You can set a different number of decimal
places for each range of real numbers, and all of the settings are
saved for the duration of runtime or until you reset the table
using the
ResetDecimalPointsTable
function.
Note: This
formatting does not change the actual value
of any tag or expression. It only changes how the value is
displayed by onscreen objects.
