The [currency->value] method returns the underlying numeric value of the currency object for use in calculations.
This example uses the [currency->value] method to allow a calculation to be performed on an object cast as currency.
var( value = 29.99, tax = .13 ) var( price = currency($value) ) 'The price is '+$price+'\n' var( withTax = $price->value *(1.0 + $tax) ) 'With Tax: '+currency($withTax)
The price is $29.99 With Tax: $33.89
