Event Variable Document

Postby Colby on Tue Oct 26, 2004 4:13 am

I updated my event variable document today. It is still a work in progress, but hopefully you all will find it useful, I do. There is a lot of information Here.

If you find that I am missing some events or variables please let me know. I did not make an attempt to add all plugins, only some of them. I would like plugin developers to send me their variables if they want them included. (preferably a word table)

Maybe I am just not getting where to set the variable and the syntax for it.

Here is what I want to do:
When I select the DVD button, I would like my text box to read DVD and when I press my TV button, I would like the same text box to read TV.

2 questions:
    Where is the variable assigned in xlobby? (i.e. Skinn editor or Setup and which tab)
    What is an example of the syntax to call that variable?

Joe I am a little unclear as to what you mean.

Here is what I want to do:
When I select the DVD button,

What dvd button? A button on the main page to take you to dvds page or something else?
I would like my text box to read DVD
What textbox? A textbox that says dvd, meaning the page youre on? Or the buttons lable text?
and when I press my TV button, I would like the same text box to read TV
What tv button? Why would a textbox need to change on a press? Are your two buttons changing the category on a single page? I admit I am a bit confused.

For a rollover you can use show/hide to show you these textboxes. A variable to display the page, dbname, or category youre on could be used. You would set these up in the skin editor.

More info

On my main page, I created 2 buttons and a text box:
    DVD (button)
    TV (button)
    (a blank text box)


When I click on DVD, I would like to have the textbox update with a value of DVD and when I select TV I would like it to change to TV.

I think I am making this more confusing than I have to. All I really need to have is an example of a user defined variable and the area/syntax it is set/called with. I know the dosument shows an example of this, but I am not clear as to where to set it.

Here is an example of what I am setting and where:
