If I want to have a button to interact with a global variable in a page, is there any way to do it?
For example, I’d like to have a variable named
Timer Started, which is default to be
false; then I want the button to alter that value to
true; and logging timestamp in another variable. You get the idea.
I’m aware of a data table way to implement this. But sometimes I don’t care about logging each entry, rather I just want the button to interact with some temporary dummy variables in order to achieve some simple functionalities.
Is there any ways to do it?
For that you would have to use controls, in your case a checkbox control and a Date and Time control.
First you create the control
And, in the button you select set control value to change the controls you want to modify.
I hope this helps!
Thanks a ton!
So it seems I misunderstood Control Value… it has to be a checkbox, slider, i.e. something we can interact with, right?
Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Hi @Chen_Zhong ,
No, you’re not wrong … (Canvas) Controls are effectively Checkboxes/Toggles, sliders, etc… which we can interact with and modify using a button with
SetControlValue() … As @Saul_Garcia suggested .
