Return Value

An object that can be passed to a parameter of type Decimal.
This function converts value to Decimal and packages the result to retain its numeric type across the host-script boundary. It may be useful for passing arguments to Decimal parameters if the script engine does not support that type natively.
The following code adds an element of type Decimal to a strongly typed list. It assumes that an instance of ExtendedHostFunctions is exposed under the name "host" (see AddHostObject).
// import types
var ElementT = host.type("System.Decimal");
var ListT = host.type("System.Collections.Generic.List", ElementT);
// create a list
var list = host.newObj(ListT);
// add a list element
