Re: [QF-Test] What is the exact syntax

I just want to add that you have to take care about the data types, if you
go for the "or" alternative.

For strings you have to use double quotes:

"$(variableA)" == "$(variableB)" or "$(variableA)" == "$(variableC)"
"$(variableA)" == "$(variableD)"

If the variables contain numbers or boolean values only you don't need to
specify double quotes.

Anyway the pythonic way with in is the more elegant way :-)

Hi Adesh,

The basic rule for the condition is to follow Python syntax, as hinted in
the manual: A condition is an expression that evaluates to either true or
false. QF-Test discriminates between simple expression that it evaluates
itself and complex expressions that are passed to the Jython script
language to evaluate.

Hence in your case you should use something like:
$(variableA) == $(variableB) or $(variableA) == $(variableC) or
$(variableA) == $(variableD)

Now you can make it a bit more 'Pythonic' using this syntax:
"$(variableA)" in ["$(variableB)", "$(variableC)", "$(variableD)"]

Subject: [QF-Test] What is the exact syntax

This is about the condition to be used in an IF
I want to check if variableA == (variableB or variableC or VariableD)   #
i.e. if A has any of the three values

# what would be the syntax if the variables were strings or numbers?

What is the exact syntax for this condition?
In the case where the variables are all strings,
I tried "$(variableA)" == "[$(variableB) or $(variableC) or
$(variableD)]" but that did not do the trick.
