Version: 1 | Requires: CF5 | Library: MathLib

Description:
As an alternative to traditional rounding, this UDF allows you to set the round interval for a number. So with an interval set to 25, the number would round to 0, 25, 50,...

Return Values:
Returns a number.

Example:

<cfoutput>
IntervalRound(83,25): #IntervalRound(83,25)#
IntervalRound(149,75,0): #IntervalRound(149,75,0)#
IntervalRound(149,75,1): #IntervalRound(149,75,1)#
</cfoutput>

Parameters:

Name Description Required
nNumber The number to round. Yes
nInterval The number to round to. Yes
bOption Used to calculate percentage for rounding. No

Full UDF Source:

function intervalRound(nNumber, nInterval){
	var nMultipler = fix(nNumber / nInterval); // How many times does the interval go into intNumber
	var bOption = 0;

	if(arrayLen(arguments) GTE 3 AND arguments[3])
		if(((nNumber mod nInterval) / nInterval) gte .5) bOption = 1; // Calculate percentage for rounding option.

	return (nInterval * nMultipler) + (bOption * nInterval);
