AutoHotkey Ternary Operator

Just a quick note for the moment on how to use ternary operators in AutoHotkey.  A ternary operator for those who are unfamiliar with this is an "If...Then...Else..." statement written in a small amount of code, usually on one line, and exists in most programming languages.

For Example, the statement:

 

copyraw
If (ThisCondition = true)
    ThisVar:=1
Else
    ThisVar:=2
  1.  If (ThisCondition = true) 
  2.      ThisVar:=1 
  3.  Else 
  4.      ThisVar:=2 

Converted to Ternary this would look like:

copyraw
ThisVar:=(ThisCondition = true) ? 1 : 2
  1.  ThisVar:=(ThisCondition = true) ? 1 : 2 
I'll add as there are a whole bunch of methods using the Ternary Operator in AutoHotkey (discussed on http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic29752.html) which I'll put in soon. I just needed something on my site now as I find myself looking for this bit of info every now and again.
