Should Be Equal As Numbers from BuiltIn automatically converts arguments to floats.

I have tried should be equal to Numbers keyword but gives error.

The values are like x=16.442,300
Another one y=16.442,3
I have used ‘get text’ to fetch values

Error- can’t convert to floating point number : value error : could not convert string to float : 16.442,300

I have used parse also not worked

Can u help please

At a guess, you’ll probably need to strip out the “,” comma first (but I could be wrong)

*** Settings ***

*** Test Cases ***
Compare String Values With Trailing Zeroes
${x} Set Variable 12.34,5
${y} Set Variable 12.34,500
${x_float} Evaluate float(“${x}”.replace(“,”, “”))
${y_float} Evaluate float(“${y}”.replace(“,”, “”))
Should Be Equal As Numbers ${x_float} ${y_float}

Hi pavan,

What’s the source of this number? The reason I ask → Decimal separator - Wikipedia

Before you mess with the numbers you should know which of the . or , is the decimal separator and which is thousand separator?


I have fetched number from bar chart(graph)
