Function thingy's INSIDE "Send" commands

4 posts in this topic

Ok, hard to explain it really, basically I've used;

$Test1 = InputBox("Tester1", "Type in something")
$Test2 = InputBox("Tester1", "Type in something else")

Now, later on in the script, I want to be able to mix those, with text. For instance if I typed in "LOLZ" into the first input box, and "HAHA" into the second, I want to be able to do something like this:

MsgBox(64, "Tester1", "You're right that's $Test1 not $Test2")

But if I do that, it comes out with "You're right that's $Test1 not $Test2", rather than "You're right that's LOLZ not HAHA", which is what I want.

Any idea how I could do it? All help is welcome.

MsgBox(64, "Tester1", "You're right that's $Test1 not $Test2")

Syntax rules all. When including variables in your output, you don't want them inside your quotes. This basically means you'll have a concatenated set of data passed to msgbox (using "&").

MsgBox(64, "Tester1", "You're right that's " &$Test1 &" not " &$Test2)

Edit for spacing :whistle:

Look in the help file for variables and operators, and you'll find the '&' ampersand for appending strings:

MsgBox(64, "Tester1", "You're right that's " & $Test1 & " not " & $Test2)
