im bored so im gonna show you how to use a dynamic var Surprised

starting with a simple quote of the day variable.

pretty simple, but what if you didnt want that quote to leave the channel?

Thats where you need to use a dynamic var


it will appear in the variables tab as...

*note that you can also do this another way, but id rather use [ and ]

now the quote you entered will only be in that single channel.

NOW lets move onto, personal greets...youll definatly need a dynamic to work this script.



as simple as undynamics, this is an example from the setgreet earlier.

pretty simple eh Smile


time, very simply made..duration not so fun

for time...

for duration...

time, no different than playing the variable.

however, duration...much longer.

*note that...


Hope that youve learved something from this Smile

*note that...
$duration($calc($ctime - %time. [ $+ [ $chan ] ]))


within $calc the evaluation brackets need to be spaced on both sides:


which solves the problem Razz $calc() seems to be one of the only identifiers with this limitation

Note that the square parenthesis have nothing to do with dynamic variables, they just denote the order in which mirc should evaluate your code.


- %var $+ $nick will not work, because mirc will evaluate %var first.
- %var $+ [ $nick ] will not work, because in this case mirc will evaluate $nick first, but after that it will simply evaluate %var and append $nick to the end of it.
- %var [ $+ [ $nick ] ] WILL work, because it will evaluate the $+ before the %var, so the contents of the identifier $nick is actually appended to the variable name, in stead of the variable value.

The reason the extra spacing is required is because there is some major ambiguity going on in mirc. Basically mirc doesn't know what to do with the [], because it can either (1) throw them away (misformed calc statement) or (2) interpret them as an evaluation order. In the case there is on spacing, case 1 applies, otherwise case 2.

Pretty simple but some people may learn quite a bit from this Tutorial. Being able to use dynamic variables comes in handy.

Good Job! Very Happy
