silly question (variables and memory)

6 posts in this topic

Maybe this question is silly, but I'm still experimenting, and there are many things that I'm not sure how they work.

So the question. Functions like WinGetPos - can be used multiple times like this?

Local $variable1 = WinGetPos(something)

Local $variable2 = WinGetPos(somethingelse)

...

?

I mean - will variables remember these selections after the function is re-triggered on something else?

 I would say the question is only silly because it would have been quicker to just run those lines and check.

@boththose - few posts ago I had an ambiguous situation with variables, that sometimes worked, sometimes not, although it was wrong at all. Besides reading and understanding are two separate things; not everyone comes from typical programming industry. So I just wasn't sure whether something happens to variable's content when reusing the same function (like WinGetPos) in conjunction with other variables after it. When I want to fill some matrix of variables with different data - I wish these data stay there, and not change.

Thanks for clarification.
