Description

Description:
Creates a With Type that is used inside a do construct in order to execute code inside a given namespace.
To avoid the below-mentioned issue error (whether in scheduled or unscheduled environment) use setVariable/getVariable with the desired Namespace.
Problems:
When used in a do-construct in scripts with allowed suspension, a namespace switching might unexpectedly occur inside some scopes (for, if, try, call) started in a scheduled environment after small suspension if with was not the main scope; however, the issue does not arise if with is used in the parent scope:
namespace switch risk namespace switch safe

] spawn { with uiNamespace do { for "_i" from 1 to 1 do { systemChat str [ currentNamespace isEqualTo uiNamespace, currentNamespace isEqualTo missionNamespace ]; // result [true, false] sleep 0.05; // <-- small suspension systemChat str [ currentNamespace isEqualTo uiNamespace, currentNamespace isEqualTo missionNamespace ]; // result [false, true] <-- switching }; }; };

with uiNamespace do { [] spawn { for "_i" from 1 to 1 do { systemChat str [ currentNamespace isEqualTo uiNamespace, currentNamespace isEqualTo missionNamespace ]; // result [true, false] sleep 0.05; // <-- small suspension systemChat str [ currentNamespace isEqualTo uiNamespace, currentNamespace isEqualTo missionNamespace ]; // result [true, false] <-- NO switching }; }; };

Using with:
with profileNamespace do { myVariable = "Hello!"; };
is the same as:
profileNamespace setVariable ["myVariable", "Hello!"];
This allows you to quickly modify/use variables within a namespace without using get/setvariable every time.
