## Ceil

### From Xojo Documentation

Method

Ceil(value as Double) As Double

Supported for all project types and targets.

Returns the value specified rounded up to the nearest whole number.

## Syntax

result = Ceil (value)

Part Type Description
result Double The ceiling of value.
value Double The value you want the ceiling of.

## Notes

The result of this function is a Double, but it will always contain a whole number.

## Examples

This example uses the Ceil function to return ceiling of a number.

Dim d As Double
d = Ceil(1.234) // returns 2

Because Ceil will always return a whole number, to round a decimal value to a certain number of places, you must first multiple the number by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round) then take the value returned by Ceil of that number and divide it by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round). In this example, the value 1.2345 is being rounded to two decimal places:

Dim d As Double
d = Ceil(1.234 * 100) / 100
