== checks to see if the value of the right parameter is equal to the value of the left parameter. It returns True if they are or False otherwise.

Note: If the parameter on the right hand side of the symbol is a negative literal it should be surrounded by parentheses. For example, (4 == (-1)).

Note that strings are compared without taking case into account. For a case sensitive comparison use [String->Equals] with the optional -Case parameter.


[If: Left_Parameter == Right_Parameter]

If: Left_Parameter == Right_Parameter;


Required Parameters
Left_Parameter The value to be compared.
Right_Parameter The value to be compared.


To return a result if one value equals another:

Use the equals symbol == within an opening [If] tag. The following example checks if the string '100' equals the integer 100. The contents of the [If] ... [/If] tags is returned since the condition is True.

[If: '100' == 100]
