 Hi. I have two distances, x and y. As I can calculate the thrigonomic distance "a" of a triangle (a ^ 2 = x ^ 2 + y ^ 2) in VBScript? Thanks

 x = GetVariable("x") y = GetVariable("y") a = sqrt((x*x)+(y*y)) SetVariable "a", a or just use the distance module http://www.roborealm.com/help/Calculate_Distance.php STeven.

 Thank you very much, Steven. a = sqrt((x*x)+(y*y)) - With this calculation goes the distance in millimeters. For example, 455.67544 and a = (sqrt((x*x)+(y*y)))/1000 - With this calculation goes the distance in meters. For example, 0.45567544 This two numbers see in screen when to active module "watch variables". Now, how I can remove this decimal number (0.45567544) and the result is 0.4?

 You almost have it, using the CInt you can use a = Cint((sqrt((x*x)+(y*y)))/100) / 10 The Cint rounds it to an integer and the last /10 gets it back to a single decimal place. STeven.
