hi i want to do a basic code for a game. Each time you click on a moving button you win one point. I think i need to use a lingo text script like this one:

on mouseUp
 member("Text").text = "1"
end mouseUp

So it shows a "1" when you click on the button. But then how can it change to "2"?

In other words how can i program numbers instead of letters? Something that will basically say "when you click here, increase value + 1 point"

I'm sure this is a very basic one...but it's hard to find info on such topics


RE: sure thats an easy one...

Try something like this:

on mouseUp me
  if member("Text").text = "" then
    member("Text").text = "1"
    member("Text").text = string(integer(member("Text").text)+ 1)
  end if
end mouseUp
