jQuery - Convert string to float or double

Find code to convert String to float or double using jQuery. To convert, use JavaScript parseFloat() function parses a string and returns a floating point number.
var sVal = '234.54';
var iNum = parseFloat(sVal); //Output will be 234.54.

The syntax of parseFloat() function is,
parseFloat(string)
If you string contains spaces then only first number will be returned.
var sVal = '23.25 45.25 68';
var iNum = parseFloat(sVal); //Output will be 23.25
This function will only return "NaN", if the first character cannot be converted to a number.
