Store a value in a variable

Store a value in a variable

Store a value in a variable

Hi I had a question about using keyboard input.
I will make a text field like this:

name:       value name
number:    value number

Now I will store the values of both in a variable.
And reuse the values at a liter moment.
How can I do this ??


RE: Store a value in a variable

easiest way is to declare them as globals.  best place to do this is in the startmovie script with initial values and at the top of every script that will use them.

global name, number
on startmovie
set name = ""
set number = 0
end startmovie

in the scripts that you want to assign the values to these variables to put something like

global name, number
on mouseup (or how you want to trigger the event)
set name = member("name text").text
set number = member("number text").text

all done.  you need to put the global declaration at the top of any script that uses them
