Hey Guys,

Well the multiplication symbol in C2 is * so you just need to put that into the expression, e.g.

2 * Variable1

This will give you the result of Variable1 (which can be your user input) being multiplied by 2.

The instance variable Bulbausur in text is updated with Text.Bulbausur*200, as you ask it to do.

But, you do it on each tick. Wich leads to a infinity number real soon.

I suppose you meant event 3 to be a SUB-EVENT to event 2. Just drag 3 under 2.
I also suppose that you wanted to writte the multiplication outcom in the textfield, not in the the Bulbausur variable. So ... Text > set text > str(Text.Bulbausur*200)

Tip: you can translate the string of the input to a number with: int (CPBox.Text).
Now the calculation = int(CPBox.Text) * Text.Bulbausur

If you gooing to make an instance variable for each multiplicator for each character, thats gonna be a lot of events.

Suggestion, make a second list holding all the multiplicators in the same order as the characters.
If you name that second list 'Mult', then the calculation =

int(CPBox.Text) * int(Mult.ItemTextAt(List.SelectedIndex))

One line of code for any selection and any value input.

Do you know as well how I can round up the number? 1321.34 to 1321

Floor(number) rounds down (1321.34 or 1321.94 = 1321)
Round(number) rounds to nearest (1321.34 = 1321 and 1321.94 = 1322)
Ceil(number) rounds up (1321.34 or 1321.94 = 1322)

Because it is probaly
str(CPNumber.Zubat*int (CPBox.Text)) & " CP"

Where you need the number rounded.
Example : str(floor(CPNumber.Zubat*int (CPBox.Text)))&" CP"
