View Full Version : Var name with $


03-03-2005, 09:35 AM
It appears that if you put a $ at the end of a variable name (username$) and attempt to key into that variable on a form it echos the keystokes but doesn't update the variable. Is there a reason for this? Just curious.

Probably an illegal variable name.

From the help file:

Legal Variable Names

A variable name must start with a letter (from A to Z, a to z). Subsequent characters can be alphanumeric or an underscore (A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9, _). Variable names are not case-sensitive, so the names "GONZO" and "Gonzo" refer to the same thing. Variable names cannot contain space characters.
