[Notice that for some problems one […]

This tutorial is about functions that test for simple conditions. More complicated tests can be made by combining functions and logical operators (not, and, or). NewLISP has so called predicates, that are functions that evaluate to TRUE or NIL after performing a test on its argument. As you know already, NIL is the newLISP equivalent […]

do you know all about searchstr

To determine if two strings are equal, I always use the If statement in a VisualNeo app. However, there is an interesting alternative. Let’s compare the first n characters of two strings. Given: two strings SetVar “[s1]” “abcdef” SetVar “[s2]” “Abcxyz” Select the first three characters from [s1] and [s2] SubStr “[s1]” “1” “3” “[s1-extract]” […]

fileexists filelist visualneowin

Dear user, Here some thoughts about using the action command FileList as alternative to FileExists. Suppose, my music folder contains several files such as Bach-BWV545.mp3 Bach-BWV563.mp3 Bach-BWV564.mp4 Suppose further, that we make a VisualNeo Win program that checks if a specific file exists. For this task, VisualNeo has the action command FileExists: SetVar “[File]” “Bach-BWV545.mp3” […]

math expressions visualneo win

You probably know the use of math expressions in VisualNEO Win’s SetVar: SetVar “[z]” “10” SetVar “[z]” “[z]+1” However, math expressions can be used in e.g. the control commands If, IfEx, While, WhileEx and Loop also, resulting in shorter code. I did not find a post on this topic. So I made some examples for […]
