> or < function for characters

Known Robert Dew 8 months ago

I want to compare two radio boxes that each output A, B, C, D, or E so I can run different responses if one output is less than the other. If the output was numbers I can use the logical functions < and > to quickly do what I need. Sadly it seems that JIM does not understand the condition when (RB1 < RB2) if RB1 and RB2 contain string values instead of number values.

It is a pain to hardcode each possible string option to manage the logic, so does anyone have a quicker workaround? The best I can come up with is to create other variables and set values to 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 based on the RB1 and RB2 values, but this seems like too much hard coding

I understand that what you want is to compare two strings alphabetically. Unfortunately Justinmind does not support it at the moment, I have created a ticket to be able to do it in future updates. There is a way to compare strings and it is with the Count function, which counts the number of characters in the string, it would only serve to compare string sizes.

Best regards
