bug in autoit --Boolean values for use in logical expressions.

Recommended Posts

aria

I dont know if this is open or resolved in a beta. I am using the latest stable version on windows 2000 professional edition.

Basically using "false" (with the quotes) as a return type from a logical expression does not work, while "true" works.

Please note that both true/false without the quotes work fine.

All 4 cases are present below :-)

This works ---

$x = 1
$y = -2

Switch ($x == $y)
    Case    True
        MsgBox(0,"","true")
    Case    False
        MsgBox(0,"","false")
EndSwitch

----------------------

This works ---

$x = 1
$y = -2

Switch ($x <> $y)
    Case    True
        MsgBox(0,"","true")
    Case    False
        MsgBox(0,"","false")
EndSwitch

----------------------

this works only for "true",

$x = 1
$y = -2

Switch ($x <> $y)
    Case    "True"
        MsgBox(0,"","true")
    Case    "False"
        MsgBox(0,"","false")
EndSwitch

--------------

it does not work for "false" ---

$x = 1
$y = -2

Switch ($x == $y)
    Case    "True"
        MsgBox(0,"","true")
    Case     "False"
        MsgBox(0,"","false")
EndSwitch

They all work if you check for a boolean result instead of a string. "False" is a string, False is a boolean value.

Yes, i'm pretty sure the reason it's returning true for "True" and "False" is because they are non-null strings, and anything that's <> 0 = true. Just use True and False without the strings. Or you can use 0 and 1.
