Suggestion: interpret $variable in string

Recommended Posts

Aktonius

In php(example) there is a functionality which can interpret variables directly in strings.

For example

$var = "awesome"
$var2 = "simple"
ConsoleWrite("Autoit is $var yet $var2 @lf")
would return "Autoit is awesome yet simple"
compared to
ConsoleWrite("Autoit is "&$var&" yet "&$var2&@lf)

If there is something you really want to see in AutoIt then open a ticket in Trac for a Feature Request.

What you suggest won't be implemented I fear.
