# my math game script

``````repeat -- loop

if [text returned of dialogResult is o] then
display dialog "well dun " buttons {"end", "continuo?"} default button 2
if the button returned of the result is "continuo?" then

else
exit repeat
end if

hope u all like it

Some more fun

``````property OPERATORS : "+-*"
property MAX_RANDOM : 100

repeat
set o to some character of OPERATORS
set a to random number from 0 to MAX_RANDOM
set b to random number from 0 to MAX_RANDOM
set r to run script (a as text) & o & b

set u to text returned of (display dialog (a as text) & space & o & space & b & " = ..." default answer "")

if (u as string) is (r as string) then
display dialog "Well done!" buttons {"Cancel", "Continue"} cancel button 1 default button 2
else
display dialog "Oh!!" & return & a & space & o & space & b & " = " & r buttons {"Cancel", "Continue"} cancel button 1 default button 2
end if
end repeat

thanks i dint know about property OPERATORS : “±*” but now i do thanks

May;

There is no AppleScript word or property called “OPERATORS”. Lef has defined a string with that variable name and then chosen one character from the string at random in the repeat loop. He could have done the same with a list: set OPERATORS to {“+”, “-”, “*”}, but that’s a lot more typing than the string he used.

The clever bit of his script is that he builds a new string: (a as text) & o & b and then runs it as a script fragment: set r to run script text_fragment_here. You can make a list like that too:

``````set list_string to "1, 2, 3, 4"
set L to run script "{" & list_string & "}"
L --> {1, 2, 3, 4}
``````

Hi.

Square brackets (‘[’ and ‘]’) are used in AppleScript to represent a certain kind of list which hasn’t been supported for over thirteen years (ie. since before I started!). They shouldn’t be used in place of parentheses ” or at all.

ok well i am only a grad 10 student and in our computer class at school we learn EXL so i don’t know what i am doing rely
