vrf Variable scope

Question asked by charles.stewart on Apr 4, 2008
Hello Jacob.
 
I think global vars are only available in imported libs if you declare them and set them to something.
I have a DecVar function which declairs and initialises all the lib vars.

Hi VRF

Does anyone know anything about variable scope? I have defined a variable lets call it test which is a global
I have then imported a function which wants to access this test variable  for read/write purposes.
I would prefer not to pass the variable directly because I have designed a format for calling different functions depending on which measurement we are making. So my option was to pass a string containing the name of the variable to the formula input of a formula box. It works when I test the function outside of the host program but not when it has been imported.
