Default expression update problem

Hey, I'm havng a problem with an expression, I'm trying to get Maya to do something when it reaches a current time, here's what I have so far...


int $time = `currentTime -query`;

if ($time = 100)
{

print whatever;// will be replaced by command later on

}


at the moment it prints the word every frame, where as I want it to only print when it gets to 100.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Cheers,

Chris

Is it supposed to be
Code:
$time = 100
or
Code:
$time == 100
?
