I've created custom list via browser, and set one of it's column's type to Number. I've set number of decimals to 0, so I was expecting, that numbers this column will store would be of type integer. However when I retrieve values from list programmatically, all the values in this column are doubles, so if I inserted 1, now the returning value is 1.0.

How can I configure my list, so this column will store numbers as integers ?

I'm using SharePoint 2010.

The column is a double value, it just won't store any precision. Convert to int to use as an int: c# ToInt32
