      • Floating Text - Create floating text that reads (String((Integer(Ability_PHOENIX)))) above (Target unit of ability being cast) with Z offset 0.00, using font size 10.00, color (80.00%, 15.00%, 15.00%), and 0.00% transparency

      • Set Ability_PHOENIX = 0.00
This is a spell I have made, Hopefully this helps to show how floating text is created to show how much damage a spell has done. My spell does raw damage which ignores armour. The if/then/else statement is simply checking weather the target has a certain debuff, if so the spell does double damage (the debuff is applied by a chance on hit passive ability from the same hero), this is not relevant to how the text is created.

have a triggered spell which sets an integer variable to a certain value
set the life of the target unit to current life - integer variabl
create floating text which shows the variable

i used a real variable which meant i had to convert it to integer (so that decimal places would not be shown) and then convert that to string, this is all done in the lfoating text actions
