Very Simple Question on Variable Assignment

Recommended Posts

footslong

I m a newbie and have a question on assigning a value to a string in autoit 3.2.4.9.

What is the difference in the following -

$Final_num = 0x40000000

MsgBox(0, "Varible", $Final_num)

and

$Final_num = "0x40000000"

MsgBox(0, "Varible", $Final_num)

The first result is 1073741824, and the second is 0x40000000

TIA

The first one is a NUMBER, the second one is a STRING.

Thanks for the reply. I understand it is a numerical assignment, and I just figured out it is printing out the dec value.

FWISW: Help file > Index tab > Variable

Scan that until you get to this:

"Each variable is stored as a variant."

Click on and read about "variant". In particular, this line:

"A variant can contain numeric or string data and decides how to use the data depending on the situation it is being used in."

Then there is some more stuff on Numbers/Strings/Booleans...

This is just FYI - I think you figured out your answer.

Welcome to the forum. Hang around, it is a great community.
