Upright Strings

Can you use double bass (upright) strings on an electric bass guitar?

I saw some really awesome nylon strings for an upright bass online, but I don't play one I play an electric bass guitar... are the strings the same gauge as electric bass strings? I know they'll be too long but can't I just cut them down?

Nylon strings will not work with the magnetic pickups on the electric they have to be steel or/and nickel. Nylon strings are good for acoustics and piezo pickups but with the electric you would barely hear your self play.
Also I'm not sure about the guage I do know thiner strings require more tention so I would be carefull for the sake of your neck
