Just reassign the var's data to newvar, and optionally zero out the old var:

[Local] $newvar = $var, $var = ""

Am I missing something?

​The use of square brackets in the AutoIt help file normally indicate optional use.

With multiple variable declarations on the same line, then using a Local, Global,  Dim, Const, or Enum  is not optional.

A working example.

Local $var = "contents"
Local $newvar = $var, $var = "new" ; or $var = "" to clear variable

ConsoleWrite("$newvar = " & $newvar & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("$var = " & $var & @LF)

Why would you want to change the name of a variable at all? It's just a name.

HELP!: didn't work... what I'm trying to do is this:

func count()

$counter += 1

$varname & $counter = "bla bla"

count()

 

so it creates a new var, any ideas?

Possible, as explained in the post just above your last one (which you don't seem to have bothered reading), but silly at any rate. Use an array instead (again).

"didn't work..." what are you talking about?

Indices of arrays are positive integers but aray elements can hold any datatype, so can hold your "bla bla". So what exactly "didn't work" ?
