i often time see syntax like this...!variableName can someone please tell me what this stands for... it seems shorthand for something but im not sure i get it sorry for my ignorance your reponse is greatly appreciated.
! = is not
so if myTest = false;
!myTest evaluates to true (basically the opposite)
if (myTest == false) is the same as if(!myTest)
As David said in his earliar post hope you have understood its significance...and I just want to add few more points
we can also use ! symbol the follwing way...
if(!someVariable) is equivalent to using if(someVariable == null)
var someVariable:String="";// empty string
if(!someVariable) is equivalent to using if(someVariable == "")
thank you both i really appreciated this was killing me I kept seeing in others actionscript code but i didnt want to assume... Thank for your replies and sharing.
