Pardon me if this question is too simple.
In the below blocks you will see all count blocks has index as #i. I have tried all possible combinations. All of them continue to have #i. When I change the name of the index all the index name change. I dont see the option to change or generate a new index name.
However in the past I have added multiple counts and indices had automatically changed.
The only crude work around I know is insert a for block then I get #j
. Then use the #j
for the count block and delete the for block. If I need one more index, I rename #j
and then again insert a for block
keep doing it …
You can create a variable and use it as a replacement for the “i” variable.
Btw why are you using loops inside a forever loop?
Usually this isn’t a good idea since the loops then runs forever,Wich causes your application to become unresponsible and crash.
Thank you for your reply. Yes creating Variable is a option but it does not look right. It comes with the word app i or app j. A long index name does not bode well. The thing is in the past when I added a new count block it automatically brought in a new index letter. Now that does not happen. Might be a Thunkable bug. The Forever I just gave as an example.
It could if it is a bug then you can report it on their GitHub page.
The “app i” variable has App in front of it because it’s a offline/app only variable.
This is to differ the variables from cloud and stored variables.
The key is to create a new function and give it an input variable such as “j”. The you can use that in your [count with] block.
Got it. Thanks @sketch and Tatiang. Will not file a bug
Finally I did solve this. The solution is insert a new Screen. Insert a count block in the new screen. It comes with #i as default. Then change it what ever you want. Copy that count to your desired screen. Delete the screen. Now I have count with i, j, k and I can keep going. Have filed a bug report too.
