Editing / Assigning Values to Variables

Dec 20, 2010 at 4:22 PM

Hi,

I just began using the expression editor / tester tool.  I could not find a way to edit/assign the value of a variable.  How is this done?

Thanks,

Ryan

You can edit a variable by right-clicking and choosing Edit Variable from the context menu.

You can also click the variable to select and choose Edit Variable from the toolbar.

Similarly you can choose Edit Variable from the Expression menu, on the main menu bar.

Hi Darren,

I tried these methods. I believe something is problematic with the interface and/or how it is interacting with my pc. When I try editing a variable (for example “User::StringVar”), the “Value:” text shows up, but there is no box to edit.

If I change the type to something like Int32, I get an editable box, but it is clear that something on the GUI is not displaying as intended.

Have you seen this before? Do you have any ideas as to how I could resolve the issue?

Thanks,

Ryan

To wrap this up…the problem I was having was related to the Display DPI settings for my monitor. It turns out that my new monitor defaulted to 120dpi, rendering the Value element as being hidden. Either resizing the window manually or resetting my dpi to 96 resolved the issue.
