Naming Created or Cloned components

Hi Thunkers,

Is there a way of naming Created or Cloned components so that we can subsequently dynamically control their attributes with the Any Component blocks?

Hi,

There is a workaround when the component name is written to some of its text properties, such as BackgroundPicture

I managed to accomplish what I need by looping through. This is possible now because we can rename “j” and use the loops in a stacked manner.

In the above application, I am checking my dynamically added text inputs and diplaying a small label if the text replaces the hint.

I have a label and an input inside a column (for each field). All have been created or cloned and I can control the attributes by looping through.

This is what I’m trying to achieve… I’m close :smiley:

Thank @actech
I use this method a lot also.

Thanks for the feedback.

While I have already been doing this, it has been mainly in the context of using transparent buttons with absolute overlays on rows or columns to be selected by the user. I have been using the text field and setting text to transparent. I have also been able to create ‘groups’ with italics/Bold etc… Their are a few problems with doing this which I won;t get into here. Suffice to say that transparent text on buttons are not always transparent.

I didn’t actually think of using the BackgroundPicture field before and I tried it today and it works a charm. Thanks for the tip! This will come in so handy:grinning:

Somewhere in another post, I gave an example of how to make the button completely transparent. Try turning the button 180 degrees and turning off the back surface display for it.
