Code studio - Get value of a referenced variable


#1

How can you get the value of a variable with a variable_id reference in the code studio?

Getting form values seems fine but I haven’t found a method of getting the value of a variable I created in build. I have a variable_id reference and can output the ID fine but from this reference can I get the value defined in build? I’ve tried mats.read and various other methods without success.

Edit: This is to be used in a Fragment Validator.

Hi Mark thanks for looking into it. I’ve only tried it in v10.1 but if there is a solution in 10.2 I would be interested in this too.

Well there is a way around it in 10.1 utilising a record search, but in 10.2 there is actually a new function that you could use that is slicker. I will respond later once I have all the information. And you are welcome. This is the kind of situation we are happy to address via the community forum as it benefits all Mats Users. I hope you are finding the Community an increasingly useful resource, as we grow it’s capabilities. Regards - MP
