I have a list with data as float or number and I need to convert it to String for comparison with robotframework with another dataset which is in String only.

I tierd string operations from robotframework but I didn't found anything to convert float to String.

  • Float to String conversion is a question that should be asked on other boards.

  • I disagree with this being off-topic. Robotframework is a keyword driven testing framework. We answer plenty of questions about Selenium here, so I'm not sure why a programming question specific to Robotframework is off-topic.

    How are you getting floats? Can you show some code. Robotframework seems to go out of its way to treat most data as a string unless you ask it otherwise. Would you be able to post some very simple Roboframework code that shows the problem you're having?

From the documentation I expect any "item" to be able to Convert To String: https://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/libraries/BuiltIn.html#Convert%20To%20String

Maybe you should first Convert To Number, those seem Floats: https://robotframework.org/robotframework/latest/libraries/BuiltIn.html#Convert%20To%20Number

  • Yes, after some trial and runs I was able to convert float to String via convert to Number Sep 28, 2019 at 4:52
