Hi guys,

I need to read into a variable a Dynamic Value but I don't know where to start.

I have three shortcuts which sets different Dynamic Values. (35, 40 and 45).

My script is supposed to read those numbers and do some stuff depending which number is set up.

Thanks in advance.

DynamicInputs and DynamicValues are intended to make functions used in scripts dynamic , not as a general variable storage space

That said you can use them as such by reading their content through the API XML within a script just like any other item from that xml
or if one does not want to deal with xpaths for reading said xml one can use a title as intermediate holdingplace

Code:

API.Function("SetDynamicValue1",Value:="40" )

' --By reading the API XML ---------------------------------------
dim xml as string = API.XML()
   dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument
   x.loadxml(xml)

dim demo as string  = (x.SelectSingleNode("//dynamic/value1").InnerText)
console.writeLine("demo : " & demo)


' --OR if one does not want to deal with reading API XML (intended use of DynamicInputs and values)----------
API.Function("SetDynamicInput1",Value:="Title.gtzip" )
API.Function("SetDynamicValue1",Value:="35" )

API.Function("SetText",Input:="Dynamic1",SelectedName:="Headline.Text",Value:="Dynamic1" )  
'OR
Input.Find("Dynamic1").Text("Headline.Text")= "Dynamic1"

dim test as string = Input.Find("Title.gtzip").Text("Headline.Text")
console.writeLine("demo : " & test)

Thanks!!
Using a Title as placeholder could work.
