Bug with variables and tokenat?

  • Hi, I'm not sure this is a bug, I think so.

    The fact is that you can assign a value to a global integer from a string.

    The same case is not possible if the value is assigned to an instance variable.

    That is, the global variable "Variable1" can adopt a string integer value with tokenat but the instance variable of the sprite can not.

  • The Instance Variable has to be (Type = Txt) to be used with a string, at the moment you have the Instance Variable as = Number,

    However, you can still use it with an Instance variable = Number as longs you convert it to a Number with the Expression "Int"

    Example:

    int(tokenat(text, 0, "|"))

    The only problem with this is that it will round the Number and you will lose the (.4)

    Not sure why Globals can use it and Instances Variables Not

  • Wrap it in float() to keep the fraction: float(tokenat(text, 0, "|"))

    If you set text to a number, then what you're trying to do is invalid. It might convert it and it might not - it seems minor since it's just a different kind of error fallback.

    Variable1 is of type int and the assignment can be done correctly.

    Why does not the same thing happen with the sprite instance variable?

    Ok, I understand, thanks.
