I answered my own question at Function to track variables down - NO MsgBox! - AUTOHOTKEY . I had read about listvars and it provided me the solution I required. Yet the moderator said:
Please don't add "thank you" as an answer. Instead, vote up the answers that you find helpful. – Mansfield Aug 6 at 13:16
Someone else said:
This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post. – valex Aug 6 at 13:20
This is very confusing to me because I never said any thank you. I merely provided an answer to the question, namely that Listvars gives me the function I am looking for. I never responded to anybody's post. Moreover, when I posted my answer, nobody had answered as yet, so to whom was I saying thank you? The word thank you don't even appear in my answer. Anyway, I then deleted my answer in blind faith that Mansfield and Valex must be knowing what they are doing, but then thereafter, someone else answers with Listvars, and nobody complains about that. Can someone enlighten me in my mistake here, what am I missing here?
Note that I posted my answer on Aug 6, whereas the other person answered on Aug 7.
