Passing through a variable as an argument

Recommended Posts


I want to have the ability to toggle a system from a test to a production environment so I'd like to be able to add the argument  to the program on launch. For example, the file I want to launch is file.exe but I want to have it in test mode. I know that in the code I can have $TestMode=True and trigger on that, but how do I make it so if I execute file.exe testmode=True it sets that variable in the script?

Use the automatically created $CmdLine array to parse the passed parameters - you will find more details in the Help file under <Using AutoIt - Command Line Parameters >. :)
