Subject: Converting String using Float.parseFloat
Date: Jun 30, 2019

I used WebUI.getText to fetch the amount value from the Web and used
Float.parseFloat command to convert it from string to float so that
I can create if else statement if the amount falls within certain value

However I encountered problem below:

Whenever the value is negative, the Float.parseFloat command would fail

Thus I had to create another if else statement before executing
Float.parseFloat command: If -ve amount, split(’ ‘)[0], else split(’’)[0]

@belinda.tan You can parse a numeric string with comma, dot, sign etc
into an instance of java.lang.Number value using
java.text.DecimalFormat#parse(String) appropriately. See for example
