This is my first post here , I was not able to find the answer to my issue when I searched . I am using Remix with Metamask , I created the contract and using the following code to mint .I have a minting limit in the contract . however the token is showing me the total supply as a huge value "10000000000000000000" which is already higher than by total supply limit, because of which the check on minting stops the execution .

[![enter image description here][1]][1]

   function mint(uint noOfTokens) returns (bool) {
      checkTokens = _totalSupply.add(noOfTokens); 
   // Check the max limit and the owner before minting 
   require(_totalSupply <= maxLimit 
            && checkTokens <= maxLimit 
            && (msg.sender == address(owner)));
    balances[owner] = balances[owner].add(noOfTokens);
   _totalSupply        = _totalSupply.add(noOfTokens);
   return true;

}

The variables are defined as uint256.

Thanks for the help and support . NKB.

enter image description here even though the token is defined with zero decimals it picks up 18 decimals for the wei and puts the value with all the decimals .

Because you have your decimals set to 18, you have to then divide by 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1 followed by 18 zeros) to get the integer-value of _totalSupply.

18 decimals is the standard for Ethereum. The smallest unit is referred to as a Wei. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 wei are equal to 1 Ether. Here is a unit map.

To simplify your contract you could set the decimals to 0, in which case you would only be dealing with integer values that are NOT divisible. The downside is that you could NOT then offer fractions of a token.

  • Thanks for your response , I understand I will try now and update here . – Naval Oct 8 '17 at 9:44
  • Hi nyusternie, I tried the second option to keep the decimals as 0 ,but it still the same . uint256 public constant maxLimit = 500000000; uint256 public _totalSupply = 0; string public constant symbol = "TEST"; string public constant name = "TestCoin001"; uint8 public constant decimals = 18; – Naval Oct 8 '17 at 17:06
  • reduce the decimals to 0 uint8 public constant decimals = 0; and then increase the total supply to some number greater than or equal to maxLimit uint256 public _totalSupply = <enter-total-supply-here>; – nyusternie Oct 12 '17 at 9:36
