Multiply by Boolean? Interpreting Equation in Equation?

_doorHeight = _panelHeight + frameWidth*(iFrameType = FRAME_WIRE)


This line is from one of the broken GS AC23 objects. Anyone know how the highlighted section works? Changing the Equal to a Not Equal fixes two of the options, but doubles the issue in the third.

When GS rewrites an object, not adding anything, as far as I can tell, and breaks part of it...

the highlighted section is returning a true or false value (1 or 0).
therefore the frame width is only added to the door height if the frame type is wire
therefore the "frameWidth" is only added to the "_doorHeight" if the "iFrameType" is "FRAME_WIRE"

Ah. Thanks Kristian.

So in this case, since changing the requisite to false solves the two false cases and doubles the true case, the equation should be a subtraction of frameWidth instead of addition. Simple fix, now just to wait for a licence to become available to use...
