adding 2 variables into 1 variable

Can anyone help me add two variables together, I am relatively new to autoit so I am sorry in advance for a lack of information.

$Call1+$Click1 = $EndValue1

I do this and I get an error message saying that a "=" is expected instead.

Just know that in programming, when you want to set a value to something it is 

Hello = X + X

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to ASSIGN TO most of the time.
Refered to 'equal to' when used as a comparison operator (test in a condition)

I think it depends on the type of variables. For integers as others have already suggested:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1+$Profit1

But for string variables you should use the following:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1 & $Profit1

Factfinder, your second example isn't adding the two together, it's concatenating them into one longer string. Not the same thing.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

BrewManNH, you are right about the semantic precision. I wasn't sure about the type of variables the OP is talking abut and if "adding" was used instead of concatenating two string variables. I think in C++ both adding (like in case of integer variables) and concatenating is done the same way:

$totalvar=$var1+$va2

I just wanted to mention the difference in Autoit.

sumandevadiga,

Declare the variables outside the loop:

Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle($TiTle, '')
Local $ponum, $ponum1 = "Whatever you want"
For $i = 1 to 97
    Local $po1 = StringStripWS(ControlGetText($hWnd, '', "TEIEdit" & $i),8) ;getting the file number    
    If $po1 = "P/O" Then            
        $ponum = StringStripWS(ControlGetText($hWnd, '', "TEIEdit" & $i+1),8) ;getting the file number        
        $ponum1 = $ponum & $ponum1        
        MsgBox(0, "Result", @error & " - " & $ponum1)
    EndIf   
Next

      Hi everyone.

      I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.

      Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.

      My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...

      Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?

      Thanks in advance!!!
       
      Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.

      Hi All,
      I tried my best to looking a solution from this forum or others, but I have no luck. The imagesearch dll working fine in my 64 bits machine, whenever I move the scripts to Win 7 (32 bits), it crashes. ImageSearchDLL.dll, ImageSearch.au3 and my simple scripts are in the same working directory. For win 7 (32 bits) machine, I'm using 32 bits ImageSearchdll.dll, the simple scripts as below:
      #include <ImageSearch.au3>
      Global $y = 0, $x = 0
      Local $search = _ImageSearch("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Images\mypc.PNG", 0, $x, $y, 0)
      if $search = 1 then
         MsgBox(0,"Found","Found my target here..." & $x & "," & $y)
         MouseMove($x, $y, 10)
      Else
         msgbox(0, "Not found","")
      Endif
      However, I received error message below when running the script. Anyone here got clue?
