How can I create new variable?
There are several ways you can create new variable:
- Go to the “Variables” dialog box by selecting “Variables” option in the “Data” menu. You have two possibilities here. You can use the “Wizard” button. This will open “Variable Wizard” where you can easily create new variable. Or you can click the “New…” button that will open “Variable” dialog box. Using dialog box gives you complete control of how variable should behave. Note the “Advanced >>” button in the bottom left corner. Clicking this button allows you to see all properties you can set for a variable.
“Variable” dialog box:
- You can use “Variables” drop down button in the “Standard” toolbar just below the menu bar in the main NiceLabel window. Selecting one of the four options (“Keyboard Input”, “Counter”, “Date”, “Time”) will open “Variable Wizard” with predefined settings for selected variable type.
- If you have “Variable” toolbar enabled (in the main window in NiceLabel) you can click either “Variable Wizard” (the one with the magic wand) or “New Variable” button.
- You can also use drop down menu in the “Toolbox” menu next to the object name. Almost all objects (except Line, Rectangle and Inverse) allow this.
Of course some variables are created automatically when you define new database or as an output result of a function.
