Using Variables in a Dialog Box

Glossary ››
Parent Previous Next

Fields in which you may enter a variable instead of a constant value are identified with a drop down list, an example of which is pictured below. The list includes the entry <Add Variable> in addition to any existing variables. Selecting <Add Variable> from the list opens the Add/Edit Variable dialog box to allow you to create the variable. If an existing variable is entered, then the entry <Edit Variable> appears in the list. Selecting this entry opens the Add/Edit Variable dialog box to allow you to edit the presently selected variable.

Note that directly typing in the name of a variable which is not yet defined, instead of selecting <Add Variable> from the drop list, also causes the Add/Edit Variable dialog box to appear when this dialog box is closed so that you can define the new variable.
