multiple statements per line

Recommended Posts

mr_unreliable

hi folks,

Is there a way to code multiple statements per line?

Here is an example of what I am looking for:

Dim $tElapsed : $tElapsed = 0

Where the semi-colon is used as a statement separator.

cheers, jw

you can set the value in the declare if that is what your trying to accomplish

Dim $tElapsed = 0

.. ?? i swear his reply was just here... ok well here:

Dim $tElapsed, $tElapsed = 0

It was, but I found it to be redundant using the same variable, it should give a warning or error

I took from the fore-going comments that a comma could be used

as a statement separator.

When I tried that, I got the following diagnostic:

"Error: Illegal text at the end of statement (one statement per line)."

From that, I guess the conclusion is that there is no such provision

for multiple statements per line, as one may find in other languages

(e.g. vbScript).

Data declarations are the only place in AutoIt where multiple statements per line are allowed. There is no general way of doing this in AutoIt as there is in some other languages.
