Boolean variable this is set during evaluation of the condition expression to the primary sensor activation condition. it is converted to false. The On Activation and On Deactivation expressions define actions that are peformed when the trigger condition changes to true or false. Expressions must either be an assignment or return nothing (see type none).arma2. Variables may be unitialized by assigning it the nil value. When any uninitialized variable is detected in any expression. When an undefined value is encountered in a field where a boolean value is expected.

Array variable thisList is set to the list of all vehicles that would satisfy the primary sensor activation condition.
