Update Text property of Label by the previous button clicked

Hi there,

 

Is there a way to auto populate a label/text field by the name of the button name previously clicked?

 

I have a screen which shows 30 computers.  When you click on a computer (button) i would like that name to show up on the popup window without me having to make 30 seperate computer popup windows?

 

Sorry if i haven't explained that the best.

 

Thanks

Hi @Joko 

 

You can create a local variableon select of button by using on each computer(button)

like in computer 1: UpdateContext({varComputer:"comp1"})

and in computer 2: UpdateContext({varComputer:"comp1"})

 

and on your lable defualt text- varComputer.

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

So then i would just have to change all 30 computers with the computer name in the varComputer?

 

Am i right in thinking i cannot import the previous .text from the label?

Yes, i think it is the best way to use it beacuse Lable can`t store the values on thier own.
