    Comparing Two Strings

    Document ID: IR10085
    The information in this article applies to:
    • AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Standard Edition
    • AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Professional Edition

    SUMMARY

    This article describes how to compare two strings.

    DISCUSSION

    String comparisons are performed in the same manor as number comparisons. As an example, we will create two strings, and perform an action based on their contents:

    1. Create two variables containing strings:
      String1 = "I am String1";

      String2 = "I am String2";
    2. Compare the two strings:
      if String1 == String2 then

      --the two strings are equal

      else

      --the two strings are not equal

      if String1 > String2 then

      --String1 is alphabetically larger than String2

      elseif String1 < String2 then

      --String1 is alphabetically smaller than String2

      end

      end

    Please note that if you want to compare the lengths of two strings, you must use the String.Length action:

    if String.Length(String1) == String.Length(String2) then
    --the two strings are the same length!!
    end
