Hi @delorisinar!

I’m not exactly sure what your question is, but maybe the page below can help you.

Hello @delorisinar

I guess you have confusion with single equals to sign and double equals to sign…

  • Single equals to sign is used to assign value. [ e.g. var myVar = 10]
  • Double equals to sign is used to compare values. [ e.g. if(myVar == 5) ]

You can take a look at following link in case if you need in depth info…

Perfect, thank you both for these resources! I’ve bookmarked them for future reference.
