Hi all,
I have two String(TextField value) which take floating point value.
I want to compare them by rounding.
Please tell the way to do it.

First you need to convert the Strings to floats - use <code>Float.parseFloat()</code>. Then you need to round the 2 resulting floats to ints - use <code>Math.round()</code> on them both. Then do simple int comparison to find out what you need to know.
Hope this helps
