Hi

When reviewing code for a combo box, something like code below lay inside a constructor:

URL url1, url2 url3;
url1=url2=url3=null;

I undertstand this as three URL objects being instantiated from the static class URL, but what is the "daisy chain" of object initializations-- url1=url2=url3=null? I have googled for an hour and can’t find an explanation.

Thank you
