#3204 closed Bug (No Bug)

"if" function does not see variables that contain _IE objects as being "true"

Reported by: mexykanu Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:



We have the following code:

Global $oIE = _IEAttach("your website","url")

local $body1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oie,'body',0)
local $body2 = False
local $body3 = True
local $body4 = 'text'
local $body5 = 2
if $body1 Then
	MsgBox(0,'','body1 is not empty')
if $body2 Then
	MsgBox(0,'','body2 is not empty')
if $body3 Then
	MsgBox(0,'','body3 is not empty')
if $body4 Then
	MsgBox(0,'','body4 is not empty')
if $body5 Then
	MsgBox(0,'','body5 is not empty')

Issue: if $body1 does not return True but the variable $body1 contains information. This is very confusing and generates a lot of wasted time debugging code that has no bugs.

Workaround: using the following code returns True

if $body1 <> '' Then

This is not AutoIt or UDF bug.
This is not support forum.

OK, But what is an autoit bug then ?! Doesn't this bug relate to the "if" function in AutoIt ?
