Local $sOutput

While True
        $sOutput &= ConsoleRead()
        If @error Then ExitLoop
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sOutput)

for the above code I am reading data from a command window using consoleread. The output I am getting from ConsoleRead() is stored in a variable $sOutput.

Here my question is the output I am getting from consoleread is a string?

Thanks for the reply. I can find the variable is a string.

In command window I am giving "echo notepad | example.exe ". When $sOutput and $string2 (where I have already declared "notepad") matches it should go inside the if condition.

But it is not working.


MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sOutput) --> It gives the result "notepad"

Global $string2 = "notepad"

if  $sOutput == $string2 Then

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "entered the if condition" & $string2)

$sOutput could contains a carriage return or a line feed (or both characters) at his end. check the length of the strings to see if they have the same length.

MsgBox(0,"",Stringlen( $sOutput) & " <-> " & Stringlen( $string2))

if this is the case, then you could clean  $sOutput from extra characters using for example:

StringStripWS ($sOutput, 2)
