Tolerance for difference
|Bobby Milstein 10 posts||
The Indicator component has a field to set the "tolerance for difference". How should that number be interpreted? I have a variable that shows a very small difference from baseline (i.e., 0.02%). I DO NOT want the indicator to show that as an increment. But I have experimented with setting the tolerance to an extremely small value (i.e., = 0.000001) as well as a very large value (i.e., = 1) and in both cases the indicator still displayed as an increment.
I would like anything lower than 0.05 to display as unchanged. But neither that value, nor either of the far extremes made a difference. Any clues?

What we do is the following:
a = first value
b = second value
1. For Equals:
ABS(a - b) < tolerance
2. For Greater Then
if not equal (using the above algorithm) then a > b
3. For Less Then
if not equal (using the above algorithm) then a < b
Let me know if this helps. If not we can get in touch and I can review your specific case.
