Empty Space In Variable Name

01 Feb 2020, 15:23

Hi, I'm hoping this one is simple... can't find the answer to this. Is there a simple way to include an empty space in a variable name?

For example, this works:

Code: Select all

Gui 1: Add , Text, +cFFFFFF x10 y10 w100 h20 vMyVariable gClick, MyTest
but this one doesn't, because of the empty space between "My" and "Variable":

Code: Select all

Gui 1: Add , Text, +cFFFFFF x10 y10 w100 h20 vMy Variable gClick, MyTest

You might approximate a space in a variable name by using an underscore instead.

Example:

Code: Select all

Gui 1: Add , Text, +cFFFFFF x10 y10 w100 h20 vMy_Variable gClick, MyTest

ok yes, thanks. I was already using an underscore instead of an empty space. I was just hoping that I didn't have to do that, but it's no problem.

thanks again :)

Hallo,
try:

Code: Select all

MsgBox,% A_IsUnicode?"Unicode":"Ansi"
It should be Unicode! Your autohotkey should run as Unicode version, not Ansi!

Code: Select all

Ideographic Space := Chr(0x3000)
MsgBox,% A_IsUnicode?"Unicode":"Ansi"
now it says Error at Line 1, this line does not contain a recognized action:
Ideographic Space := Chr(0x3000)

See:https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm#s11

During installation of AutoHotkey, you will be asked to choose from UNICODE or ANSI. In short, you would probably want to choose UNICODE. It has support for non-English letters and numbers (characters). Keep going until you see an Install button.

and choose UNICODE

Is because the Rohwedder string contains a 00 and yours a 20 between Ideographic and Space

does this mean I should un-install my AHK and re-install using Unicode?
