    Hi. Forgive me as I am completely new to any type of coding. However I am trying to write some coffee scripts for 9.6. My question is, is there a mathematical operator for "not equal to"?

    for example in the following line of code I would like

    if (tool->GetType() not equal 1016202)

    I'm not sure if there is a mathematical expression for "not equal". Can someone advise? Thanks so much

    Same as C/C++/Java: !=

    as is:

    if (tool->GetType() != 1016202)

    Don't forget that there is a difference between the 'equals' operators:

    = is for assignment: var x = 10;
    == is for conditional comparison: if (x == 10)

    Lot of beginners get caught out by that one! :)

    By the way, don't know anything about C/C++/Java. This is my first coding experience ever.

    Study the COFFEE documentation (esp. the "Introduction", "The C.O.F.F.E.E. Language", and "Tutorials"). I'd also suggest getting some sort of C++ or Java 'Reference' book. This will give you a general idea of the syntax and how various operators/statements work in C++/Java - which work similarly in COFFEE to a good extent.

    Look at the examples in the documentation (there are usually links to code or embedded code in these at the bottom of various Reference sections).

    You can download the R9.5 COFFEE Windows Documentation here.

    If you are on a Mac, you will have to live with HTML Documentation from here

    Good luck in your learning and coding! :)

    One more question. Writing a script

    I have an arbitray tool chosen and active. I run the following script

    CallCommand X
    (do this)
    CallCommand Y
    (do this)
    CallCommand Z
    (do this)

    THe way the above script is written, after the script is run, tool Z will be the active tool. However I want the original tool to remain the active tool.

    How would I get the script to return back to the original tool that was active?

    You could do something like this:

      
    var old_tool = doc->GetActiveTool()->GetType();  
    CallCommand(CommandX);  
    CallCommand(CommandY);  
    CallCommand(CommandZ);  
    CallCommand(old_tool);  
    

    This stores the Command ID in the variable old_tool, then calls your CommandX,Y,Z and then calls the old tool again.

    cheers,
