Literals (or constants)

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A literal, as opposed to a variable, is a constant value of a given data type.

 

Literals can be assigned to a variable of the same type :

 

sName = 'Olivier'

nAge = 39

bIsSmart = true

 

Literals can also be used in expressions :

 

nTomorrow = Today() + 1

sFullName = 'Olivier' + sFamilyName

 

In all cases, note how the Code Editor uses syntax highlighting to identify string literals in blue, integer literals in red and boolean literals in grey.
