# How to Drop Leading Zero from Double

Heya there,

Looking to see if anyone knows how to remove the Leading Zero from a Double inside of a watchlist.

I've looked through ToS Learning Center, and they state it IS possible to do it,
they do so "oh matter of factly", but never tell you how to do it or code it.

Above is the link to ToS where they say you can do it.
They're Delta Quote does it automatically,
But if I make a Custom Quote, it tags on the leading 0 by default.

I've tried Round(optionDelta, 0) type coding and it doesn't work.

Solution
@sL.vEr The definition provided by TOS (to my understanding of it) means that it is possible to write the code without using the zero, i.e.,
def sample = something - .123; - but not that the output of the code can be modified.
One way that the zero might be removed could be to use AddLabel(), multiply your current result by 100, and hard-code in a decimal point. I haven't tried if that will work, but keep in mind if it does that while the visuals might match the original column, using AddLabel() may cause sorting problems. Just some thoughts and ideas.

Yea, that makes sense, just really vague on their part.

I tried messing with your idea right now, just to try it
but shifting all of the numbers in the list just doesn't work out unfortunately
on top of the fact that as you mentioned, it would ruin the sorting order
