Keyboard entry description field

Recommended Posts

One issue I find extremely annoying is that when I copy a variable that allows a keyboard entry (timers, numeric, ASCII variables, etc) the description field, which shows up as the prompt on screen for the operator, is deleted and replaced with a generic "Variable nnnn". I understand this field is used to establish some form of unique name for these variables, but how about leaving the description in place and just appending "(nnnn)" so that it is easier for the programmer to get the right description in the field?

Hi all,

 

Although I am not as affected by this as slightlyloopyatthisstage Flex, I can see how it would be frustrating if you are doing it endlessly.

 

Perhaps another solution would be the addition of a variable list via another tab on the outputs area screens.  One could then go through the variable list and copy/paste, using all the innate abilities there, or do other names prior to needing them.  You would then have a dropdown listbox in the variable screen for easy choosing of the already named variable, similar to the existing method of choosing MIs, SBs etc.

 

cheers,

 

Aus
