In COFFEE, I know to use 'evaluate()'. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to do the same in C++ using a GeDialog EditNumber gadget. I thought that it was automatic in C++, but this may be for Attribute descriptions only.

Parser seems to be the right class to use, but I have no idea how to use it. Is AddVar() necessary for math expressions entered in the EditNumber? Is there a simpler way without Parser that I cannot find?

Again - tutorials, examples, more tutorials, and more examples. I hate spending a week tearing apart something until the straight-jacket is firmly applied. ;)

Thanks,

AddVar() is only needed if you want variables to be evaluated in the math expression. Otherwise just use Eval().
