Problem comparing strings

Hello, in version, I have to put the strings to be compared between parentheses, I think it's a bug, because in version, I do not have to do that. This problem only occurs when using the "Not".

$str = 'TEXT'

If Not StringLeft($str, 2) = 'M_' Then
	MsgBox(0, 'without brackets', 'OK')
	MsgBox(16, 'without brackets', 'Error')

If Not (StringLeft($str, 2) = 'M_') Then ; if I put in brackets, compare properly
	MsgBox(0, 'with brackets', 'OK')
	MsgBox(16, 'with brackets', 'Error')

This has always been the case when using Not. No Bug.

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Please read Operators page, You will see that Not opetator has a higher precedence that =
so your expression is executed as (Not string1) = string2
