    Text Reading And Editing

    Hi, again,

    Is there an example anywhere that shows you how to read and/or edit text from a text box or string. I'm having trouble doing that, and I need it for something.

    Thanks,
    Variant

    What you might be running into here is that the edit box and string objects don't provide conditions themselves for comparing them to other things - you have to get them through the expression editor instead.

    Set up a new condition using the Special object (first one in the list) and go to "Compare two general values". Then, in the first field, select "Retrieve data from an object" and right-click the text or edit box - you should then see the option to get the text from them.

    After that, you can compare whether the string is equal to another - or you can pass this string into another object's condition directly by using the same expression.
