failures in assignment $o2 = $o1 and if "string" = $obj.name

Recommended Posts


The newbie questions just keep coming. I'm getting odd behaviour out of two code fragments that look reasonable but perhaps not?

Does the equals (assignment) operator copy complete _IE objects? Or do I need to invoke some kind of copyObj() function? I'm getting what looks like assignment failure from:

$oFormElement.name = "systemRight"

$oCopyOfElem = $oFormElement

==> $oCopyOfElem.name is null.

And does IF "someString" = $myString work? I'm getting behaviour that suggest the comparison is only occuring on the first character. Or perhaps even the string pointer.

If I'm correct, Nope. It will copy the reverence(pointer) of/to the object.

does IF "someString" = $myString work?

Considering its been there for a long long time ... So I think so.

Language Reference - Datatypes

Language Reference - Operators

And just in case Language Reference - Conditional Statements

Remember: AutoIt -> Variant -> Auto Conversions active when doing something that involves two different data types. (strings, numbers, bools)(not sure about binary type at this moment, but I think the point is clear.)
