Hey teachers ;)

What is the difference between this..

Local $Gui1  = GUICreate("form1", 800, 600)
Local $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("clickme",10,  10, 75, 25)

And this

$Gui1  = GUICreate("form1", 800, 600)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("clickme",10,  10, 75, 25)

What local does?

I read the help file but i cant get it..

armoros, from the helpfile

Global = Forces creation of the variable in the Global scope
Local = Forces creation of the variable in the Local/Function scope

So, if you define a variable as Local, it is only defined for that scope. As an example, if you define a variable as Local within a Function, it is not available outside of that Function:

$x = "40"
_test()
_test2()

Func _test()
Local $y = "30"
MsgBox(0, "", $x & " & " & $y)
EndFunc

Func _test2()
MsgBox(0, "", $x & " & " & $y)
EndFunc

Func 2 is going to fail, because it doesn't "know" what $y is.

armoros,

You might find the Variables - using Global, Local and ByRef tutorial in the Wiki an interesting read. ;)

JLogan3o13,

Lots of good tutorials in the Wiki - even if I say so myself as the author of quite a few of them. ;)
