How do I compare string in "compare two values"

Get help using Construct 2

Hi :),

I've been tring to compare a text variable, kappavar, that for example stored "Kappa" as a string in the "compare two values" event.

[kappavar == "kappa"]

Most times it returned false and sometimes it did return true, but not because it was the same string.
I know this because I listed many of the comparison events in the same group and all of them, with different strings comaprison, returned true!

Right now I have it working like this:

[-1 < find(kappavar,"kappa")

Is there a better way to compare strings & text variable?

Code like this does not return false sometimes and sometimes true, when the values don't change. Go through your code again, you've probably made a mistake. Comparing a string like the way you want to has to work.
