Assignment Operator (=)

Used to assign a value to a variable or property.


variable = value


The = operator syntax has these parts:

variable Any variable or any writable property.
value Any numeric or string literal, constant, or expression.


The name on the left side of the equal sign can be a simple scalar variable or an element of an array. Properties on the left side of the equal sign can only be those properties that are writable at runtime.
