Murphy's Law as it applies to online help article. ;)


#1

The following appears in the HELP article: Dynamic Component supported operators. Please note the last item on the list. I came upon this when looking to verify what the (not equal to) operator is in Dynamic Components. Whatever it is, methinks it was 1) omitted by accident, or 2) doesn’t play well with HTML… :wink:

Following is a list of all operators supported in dynamic component formulas.

+ (add)
- (subtract)
* (multiply)
/ (divide)
< (less than)
> (greater than)
<= (less than or equal to)
>= (greater than or equal to)
= (equal)
() (parentheses)
(not equal to)

Anyone want to play, ‘Fill in the Blank’ for me? I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Phillip

Have you tried “<>”? It’s not only commonly used, but the SketchUp 7 manual has this:

Dynamic Component Supported Operators
Following is a list of all operators supported in dynamic component formulas.
• + (add)
• - (subtract)
• * (multiply)
• / (divide)
• < (less than)
• > (greater than)
• <= (less than or equal to)
• >= (greater than or equal to)
• = (equal)
• () (parentheses)
• <> (not equal to)

Just did, thanks! It works much better than (!=) [#comparison error]. :laughing:

Oops! Sorry about the typo in that Help Center article. We got it updated with the <> displaying correctly.
