StringUpper not working on a variable?


Recommended Posts

This is weird. If I use the following code, StringUpper works:

$PC = StringUpper(InputBox($ScriptTitle, "Enter the Computer Name:"))

However, since I have to check for @error based on the input of the InputBox, I had to move it until after the $PC variable was populated, which I figured would work the same, but it's not. If I use the following code, the contents of the $PC variable does not get converted to UPPERCASE characters:

$PC = InputBox($ScriptTitle, "Enter the Computer Name:")

If @error = 1 Then Exit


Can someone assist me with how I can convert a variable to all UPPERCASE characters?

You have to assign the return string of the StringUpper to something before you'll see the results.

Return Value

Returns the string converted to uppercase.

$PC = InputBox($ScriptTitle, "Enter the Computer Name:")

If @error = 1 Then Exit

$PC = StringUpper($PC)
ConsoleWrite($PC & @CRLF)

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
