Label based on variable

(Zach) #1

I would like it so on one scene the user can click a button that will bring up a pop up or something to set a variable and then I can have multiple scenes with labels that show that variable.

Hi Zach, this might get you started…

var myVar = prompt("Enter a Variable", "");
console.log (myVar)	

Also, try searching the Forum for Global Variable


Just put your var in the window context

window.myVar = prompt("Enter a Variable", "");

To reuse it later just get an named element by ID and replace innerHTML
(Naming is done under ID_Information-> Unique Element ID)

var elm = hypeDocument.getElementById( 'your_id_name_goes_here' );
elm.innerHTML = window.myVar;

Change VAR- and ID-names to suit your needs and naming preferences.
