Checks whether a variable's contents are numeric, uppercase, etc.
if Var is Type if Var is not Type
The variable name.
See the remarks below.
|integer||True if Var is non-empty and contains a purely numeric string (decimal or hexadecimal) without a decimal point. Leading and trailing spaces and tabs are allowed. The string may start with a plus or minus sign.|
|float||True if Var is non-empty and contains a floating point number; that is, a purely numeric string containing a decimal point. Leading and trailing spaces and tabs are allowed. The string may start with a plus sign, minus sign, or decimal point.|
|number||True if Var contains an integer or floating point number (each of which is described above).|
|digit||True if Var is empty or contains only digits, which consist of the characters 0 through 9. Other characters such as the following are not allowed: spaces, tabs, plus signs, minus signs, decimal points, hexadecimal digits, and the 0x prefix.|
|xdigit||Hexadecimal digit: Same as digit except the characters A through F (uppercase or lowercase) are also allowed. [v1.0.44.09+]: A prefix of 0x is tolerated if present.|
|alpha||True if Var is empty or contains only alphabetic characters. False if there are any digits, spaces, tabs, punctuation, or other non-alphabetic characters anywhere in the string. For example, if Var contains a space followed by a letter, it is not considered to be alpha.|
|upper||True if Var is empty or contains only uppercase characters. False if there are any digits, spaces, tabs, punctuation, or other non-uppercase characters anywhere in the string.|
|lower||True if Var is empty or contains only lowercase characters. False if there are any digits, spaces, tabs, punctuation, or other non-lowercase characters anywhere in the string.|
|alnum||Same as alpha except that characters 0 through 9 are also allowed.|
|space||True if Var is empty or contains only whitespace, which consists of the following characters: space (%A_Space%), tab (%A_Tab% or `t), linefeed (`n), return (`r), vertical tab (`v), and formfeed (`f).|
True if Var contains a valid date-time stamp, which can be all or just the leading part of the YYYYMMDDHH24MISS format. For example, a 4-digit string such as 2004 is considered valid. Use StrLen() / StringLen to determine whether additional time components are present.
Years less than 1601 are not considered valid because the operating system generally does not support them. The maximum year considered valid is 9999.
The word DATE may be used as a substitute for the word TIME, with the same result.
Note: The operators "between", "is", "in", and "contains" are not supported in expressions.
[AHK_L 42+]: The system locale is ignored unless StringCaseSense Locale has been used.

if var is float MsgBox, %var% is a floating point number. else if var is integer MsgBox, %var% is an integer. if var is time MsgBox, %var% is also a valid date-time.
