  • Help me with VARIABLES please...

    Hello guys
    I am new to the game of developing. I hope you can help me.

    I have 3 input boxes A, B, C
    I have 1 button 'result'

    In box A the value 4000
    In box B the value 3000
    I would like box C to display the result of box A - B when the button is pressed. How would I do this?

    I know this may be simple but I can't programme to save my life!

    Thanks in advance [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi geba

    you are using simple mathematics here.
    so, in your 'button' OnClick event, the Actions list will give you the option to retrieve the text from the Edit Field Objects 1 & 2 and store it in a variable, with:

    <font color=green>%ObjectText1% = EditFieldObject[EditField1].GetText</font color=green>
    - and
    <font color=green>%ObjectText2% = EditFieldObject[EditField2].GetText</font color=green>

    all you need to do then is store the result of the subtraction in another variable after Evaluating it:

    <font color=green>%SubtractionResult% = Evaluate (%ObjectText1% - %ObjectText2%)</font color=green>

    and display the result in the third Edit Field Object

    <font color=green>EditFieldObject[EditField3].SetText ("%SubtractionResult%")</font color=green>

    Hope this helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

        Thank you both very much. The post and link you provided were fantastically useful for a 'non programmer' such as myself.

        Happy posting
