Assigns a variable by name with the data.
Assign ( "varname", "data" [, flag = 0] )
|varname||The name of the variable you wish to assign. Cannot be an array element and must only contain letters, digits and underscore characters (as per normal variable naming conventions).|
|data||The data you wish to assign to the variable.|
|flag||[optional] controls the way that variables are assigned (add required options together):
$ASSIGN_CREATE (0) = (default) Create variable if required
$ASSIGN_FORCELOCAL (1) = Force creation in local scope
$ASSIGN_FORCEGLOBAL (2) = Force creation in global scope
$ASSIGN_EXISTFAIL (4) = Fail if variable does not already exist
Constants are defined in AutoItConstants.au3
|Failure:||0 if unable to create/assign the variable.|
If there is a need to use Assign() to create/write to a variable, then in most situations, Eval() should be used to read the variable and IsDeclared() should be used to check that the variable exists.
Eval, Execute, IsDeclared
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Assign the variable string sString with data. Assign("sString", "This is a string which is declared using the function Assign") ; Find the value of the variable string sString and assign to the variable $sEvalString. Local $sEvalString = Eval("sString") ; Display the value of $sEvalString. This should be the same value as $sString. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sEvalString)
