You may be one of only a handful of people actually using this tool -- i so rarely hear about it.
I think I could add that -- can you tell me in what areas of the program you need to see decimal places?

Hehe, I guess I am one of the only few people hat still use your app I like it I think you could market this as an iPhone / android app quite easily.

Thanks for getting back to me  ;D

I’m quite happy with the program its works very well each day im at work so I can track my $7.00 spending limit a day and if I don’t spent the money it will take across the remainder across each day and like how you included into your program that it won’t add the amount unless you run the app which works well when I use the laptop at work so will exclude the weekends.

I have listed the pages where the decimal place would be great  :D

And thank you again  :Thmbsup:

I'm splitting this decimal discussion off into its own thread.

Ok so i've finally climbed back down into the dark tunnel of the Point Motivator source code to look into this..

There is no super easy fix, but there are a few options to enable this:

1. I could add a global option that says to report points as dollars (or user defined currency), so that instead of the main display saying "300 points" it would say "$3.00"
And then probably make the same change to the charts and summary reports.
But this would leave all of the dialogs and settings exactly as they are, so that when configuring things you would use "100" to mean "$1.00"

2. I could try to more properly convert everything to floating point values.

I think that option one will be perfect if possible.  :Thmbsup:

Give this version a try:


Go into options and select to display points as currency.

Each day i start the app the check to turn on the decimals is not persistent so i have to turn it on each day.

Any chance you can fix it?  :D

I just tested it here and it seems persistent.. Not sure why it wouldn't be for you.  Have you tested to see if any other options are being saved?
