i have mass parameters calculated as follows:

/*

/*** CALCULATE THE MASS_*** VALUES

/*

mass_kg = mp_mass("")

mass_lb = mass_kg / .4536

/*

/*** END MASS_*** RELATIONS

they result in 2 decimal place numbers. how do i change the number of

decimal places shown?

thanks

Don't know that BUT in WF, you should be using pro_mp_mass, not mp_mass("").

Write the parameter in a note as &mass_kg[.2] The decimal point and number in
brackets tells Pro/e how many decimal places to display. Don't remember if it
truncates or rounds.

this doesn't change the display of a model tree column displaying the
parameter
(I don't think!)

Yeah, Pro/e's goofy that way. It assumes that, if you'd wanted the parameter to
change, you'd have changed the model in some way that would have effected the
mass. So, do what it wants (or something like it, such as) suppress a feature
and
resume it. This should cause a recalc of mass in your relation, and so, in the
drawing note that uses that parameter.

If this doesn't work, I've got another method that's less goofy.
