Default Dynamic Script String Issue


As per our observation if we define string variable with in quotes of another string, used for dynamic scripting, script does not get complied and start giving errors.
for example..
string str;
str = "
/**custom code */
treenode item = parnode(1);
treenode current = ownerobject(c);
int rownumber = parval(2); //row number of the schedule/sequence table
string strx= "test";
treenode involved =item;
int ishan =duniform(1,10,3);

Strx string is in quotes of str string, if we remove it, script gets compiled.

We are curious to know why it is happening, does flexsim script does not support this.

Flexscript is based on C/C++ so the behavior is correct.

When Flexscript find the second " (the first for strx), Flexscript thinks it is the end of the string.

Try to replace
string strx="test";
string strx=\"test\";
