Get default value of a Number Field


I'm trying to get the default value of a number field. I need this deafault value for a calculation, therefore it has to be a double. The default value of weight is 0.2

def weight = Double.valueOf(issue.getCustomFieldValue(ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Weight")).getValue());
def cf = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Customfield");
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, weight);


Best regards,

Try using .floatValue() and casting def to double by using (double).
