IPIVR v. 4.04

I have a script, where I get from ICM, an ECC variable in string format. I need to convert this string into an integer, so that I can play a dollar amount for the callers account balance. Everything that I am trying, doesn't seem to work! I didn't think a conversion was this difficult.

okay, so here is what I have in the expression editor, int.parseInt(lpamt)

The script is still throwing exceptions.

It's actually Integer.parseInt("44") not int.parseInt("44")

You should try leaving the account balance as a string and playing the prompt as:


There is simple TTS capabilities that speak dollar amounts.

leaving as string and using system for prompt failed. it played nothing.

the listed integer parse didn't work either.

Ultimately, I have a string variable, that I need to convert to SOME kind of integer/float/ whatEVER to use the create generated prompt step so that I can play the account balance. I just can't believe that I can't get anything to work! It won't convert, and all I can do is laugh now, because this should be SO simple. we're supposed to cut over and I can't believe I'm failing to provide because of a simple (so I thought) conversion from string to xx.

Too cool. Now you're making me want to get a toll free number for the same reason I got a domain name.

Thanks for your support in the forums.

Hey avholloway


I see your call or someone's

Your Java/CRS write up is excellent.
