var keyword in a function will be in the local scope of the function(it will not exists outside the function). But if a variable is created without the var keyword, it will become a global variable.
var name="Binny"; //A String site="http://www.bin-co.com/"; //Another String number=13; // Number precise_number = 12.9904289; //Float var char = 'B'; //Character
Now the variable 'name' has a the value binny and the variable 'site' has the value 'http://www.bin-co.com'. We can use
alert() display it.
alert("My name is "+name+" and my site is "+site);
This will display a message box with this message in it
My name is Binny and my site is http://www.bin-co.com/
Now try it out in our T-Box - just type the three blue lines given above into the below box and hit the 'Run' button to see your script in action.
And if you name is not Binny, change the name variable to whatever your name is. For example...
var name="Clark Kent";
Variables can store numbers the same way it can store stings. For example
var a=5; var b=4; var c=a+b; alert("The sum of "+a+" and "+b+" is "+c);
Copy it to the T-Box if you want to see it in action. Here two Numbers are added and their result is stored in a third variable.
A word about the '+' operator - this is both a concatenation operator and a addition operator. Not a good idea, but that is what we have. If the variables on both side of the operator are numbers, it will return the sum of the numbers. If either variable is a string, the operator will return the concatenated string.blog comments powered by Disqus
