Is Operator

Compares two object reference variables.


result = object1 Is object2


  • result
    Any numeric variable.

  • object1
    Any object name.

  • object2
    Any object name.


If object1 and object2 both refer to the same object, result is True; if they do not, result is False. Two variables can be made to refer to the same object in several ways.

In the following example, A has been set to refer to the same object as B:

Set A = B

The following example makes A and B refer to the same object as C:

Set A = C
Set B = C
