LabTalk Object Type:
The numeric object is a sub-object of the system object. The numeric object properties allow you to read and alter numeric settings which are set in the OPTION.CNF file. These settings can also be accessed in the Options dialog box.
If you are using the German language version of Origin or you have set Tools: Options: Numeric Format tab, Separators = 1.000,0 (system.numeric.separators=2), Origin will recognize a comma as decimal mark and use a semicolon for separating function arguments in these Origin tools.
If you do prefer to use default English Origin settings in these tools (decimal separator is a period (".") and comma is used to separate function arguments), you can set
system.numeric.formulaSmartFuncArgSep=0; // the default value is 1
Number of digits displayed after the decimal point. Data values that exceed this number are rounded off. However, the actual values are used in calculations.
If you do prefer to use default English Origin settings (decimal separator is a period (".") and comma is used to separate function arguments) in the Script Window, Command Window and LabTalk Console (in Code Builder), you can set
system.numeric.scriptSmartFuncArgSep=1; // the default value is 0
Numeric separator for data display: 0 = Windows Settings, 1 = 1,000.0, 2 = 1.000,0, 3 = 1 000,0, and 4 = 1'000.0.
