text box input for decimal numbers

Engager

Hi there,

I have a text box input (SearchTextSetting module) where users can enter in a number, which is then used for calculations in HiddenSearch & HiddenPostProcess.
The problem I have is that, it only seems to recognize the digits before a decimal point. ie. if user enters 2.50 then when I print it's value to table, it displays as 2.

I attach code snippet below, where SearchTextSetting input is used to set $baseload$.
When I use whole numbers, the calculations work out fine, but I would like it to also work properly when decimal numbers are entered.

...
         <module name="HiddenSearch" autoRun="False">
          <param name="search">index=perf sourcetype=snmp | bucket _time span=1m | stats avg(dpStatusSystemUsageLoad) as "AvgLoad" by host,_time | eval BaseLoad=$baseload$</param>
          <module name="SearchTextSetting" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col3" autoRun="False">
              <param name="elementName">baseload_element</param>
              <param name="settingName">baseload_setting</param>
              <param name="label">Key in baseload ie. System Usageload when no transactions are running (use 2 if unknown)</param>
              <module name="ConvertToIntention">
                <param name="settingToConvert">baseload_setting</param>
                <param name="intention">
                  <param name="name">stringreplace</param>
                  <param name="arg">
                    <param name="baseload">
                      <param name="fillOnEmpty">True</param>
                      <param name="value">$target$</param>
                    </param>
                  </param>
                </param>
                <module name="HiddenPostProcess" layoutPanel="panel_row3_col1">
                  <param name="search">table _time,AvgLoad,BaseLoad</param>
                  <module name="JobProgressIndicator">
                    <module name="EnablePreview">
                      <param name="enable">True</param>
                      <param name="display">False</param>
                      <module name="SimpleResultsTable">
                        <param name="drilldown">row</param>
                        <param name="count">20</param>
                      </module>
                    </module><!-- EnablePreview -->
                  </module><!-- JobProgressIndicator -->
                </module><!-- HiddenPostProcess -->

ok after some unsuccessful attempts at using addterm instead of stringreplace (for which I found documentation lacking..), I got it working by using tonumber function

ie. before fix:
index=perf sourcetype=snmp | bucket _time span=1m | stats avg(dpStatusSystemUsageLoad) as "AvgLoad" by host,_time | eval BaseLoad=$baseload$

after fix:
index=perf sourcetype=snmp | bucket _time span=1m | stats avg(dpStatusSystemUsageLoad) as "AvgLoad" by host,_time | eval BaseLoad=tonumber("$baseload$",10)
