Returns from a subroutine to which execution had previously jumped via function-call, Gosub, Hotkey activation, GroupActivate, or other means.
Return [, Expression]
This parameter should be omitted except when return is used inside a function.
Since this parameter is an expression, all of the following are valid examples:
return 3 return "literal string" return MyVar return i + 1 return true ; Returns the number 1 to mean "true". return ItemCount < MaxItems ; Returns a true or false value. return FindColor(TargetColor)
Known limitation: For backward compatibility and ease-of-use, the following two examples are functionally identical:
return MyVar return %MyVar%
In other words, a single variable enclosed in percent signs is treated as a non-expression. To work around this, make it unambiguously an expression by enclosing it in parentheses; for example: return (%MyVar%)
If there is no caller to which to return, Return will do an Exit instead.
Functions, Gosub, Exit, ExitApp, GroupActivate
