CONST

Defines a symbolic constant.

Syntax

CONST symbol_name = expression [ , symbol_name = expression ]…

Comments

Constants allow your programs to use symbolic names in place of numeric or string values.

symbol_name is the name that the constant will have throughout your program. You cannot change the value of a constant once you have defined it.

expression is a numeric or string expression assigned to the constant. You cannot use variables or functions in the expression.

Constants defined in a subprogram or function are local to that subprogram or function.

Example

CONST true = 1
CONST daysperweek = 7

'Use constant in array declaration
DIM Days(daysperweek)
