Declaring Variables

6 posts in this topic

Hi, i don't know if this question has been asked before but i was wondering what is the best way to declare a variable? Which is better Dim, Local or Global ? The help file doesn't offer much help about this so maybe one of the experts can help me out.

There is no "the best" way.

Dim = Local scope if the variable name doesn't already exist globally (in which case it reuses the global variable!)

Global = Forces creation of the variable in the Global scope

Local = Forces creation of the variable in the Local/Function scope

So, no difference not even in speed ??

As a general rule (which has a few exceptions to 'prove' it) declare Global outside of Func/EndFunc and Local inside them.
