Displaying a float number in sketchpad/feedback


I am trying to display a number on the screen (using the textline element in the sketchpad or feedback). This number is stored in a variable and is not an integer. I am trying to display the number by putting the name of the variable between brackets.

It works fine in OpenSesame, but in OSweb it displays an "integer version" of the number, e.g. it will display 2 instead of 0.02.

I tried various things including an inline script to convert the number into a string manually, but the results are the same. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.


  • Hi @DavKzo ,

    I believe I've heard about this issue before, but I thought it was solved recently. (I can't reproduce it on my system.) Did you update to the latest versions of OpenSesame/OSWeb?

    If this doesn't solve the issue, perhaps it helps if you put an empty space before the float, so that it is treated as a string?

    For example:

    my_float = " 0.02"

  • Hi Lotje,

    Many thanks for the very quick reply!

    I believe I have the latest version. OSweb is

    I can't define the variables as strings because I need to do operations on them.

    I played around a bit more and found a bit more precisely where the issue is. It is probably a bug when reading files:

    I did not mention it, but I define the variables in an Excel file, which is read in a loop element. I found that if I define the value manually using the table rather a file, it works well. With a CSV file, the problem persists. So there is some kind of issue when reading float values from files in the loop element.

    It would be better for me to keep using files to define the variables, as I am reading at each iteration across blocks, so if there is an easy way to fix it that'd be great. If not, I can probably do without (it'll be more annoying to do and less elegant, but well, as long as it works in the end!...)

    Many thanks,


  • FYI Displaying float values for variables defined in a file rather than a table seems to work better with OS3.3.5 + OSWeb1.3.9, but doesn't with the latest version (OS3.3.6 + OSWeb1.3.11).

    I still have some formatting issues, but that might be due to my poor JavaScript skills.

  • @sebastiaan is this another regression?

  • @DavKzo You mention that you're reading the loop table from file. But you also mention using OSWeb, which doesn't support this feature. In other words: I think that there's a bit of confusion here, and it would be helpful if you upload an example experiment that illustrates the problem plus a clear description of when you're running into this problem!

  • Sorry for the late response. I've just noticed your reply, @sebastiaan.

    I didn't realise that reading the loop from file was not supported in OSWeb. Thanks for the clarification. (It looks like it partly works, though! — but I indeed ended up using the tables.)
