Sample text

This time, you don't get an error. The first line generated an error the first time the script was run, but the second line was executed anyway, and the new_rad variable was created and assigned the value of 10. The variable new_rad became available from that point on, and was a valid variable by the time you ran the script for the second time. This is a common scripting problem that many new scripters encounter. When you encounter errors, reexamine your script to ensure that variables are declared in the proper order.

Notice that the variable t was declared before the body of the do code block so it would be available for the while conditional test at the end of the script. x < 101 This would cause MAXScript to throw an error. 3. x < 101 0, i*20] Youget the same result as in step 2. However, the script statements are executed differently. If you look carefully, you will notice that in step 2, the statements in the do body are always executed at least once. The condition is not tested until you have executed the loop body.
