Does AutoIt do static local variables?

3 posts in this topic

I can't seem to find anything about static local variables in AutoIt.

Static locals are much more convenient than using globals. With gloabls you must scan for variable names that happen to match in different functions. Right now I tend to use ByRef variables in place of globals...

Statics are good for recursion and various data structures.

Anyway, I was just curious...

See "Const" and "Local" in the AutoIt helpfile...

Edit: After reading Koder's reply... oh, duh. Ignore this.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

A static variable is not a constant. A static retains it's value between calls to a function and can only be changed within that function. Useful for keeping track of stuff like recursion depth.
