    Default Fields + Addition + Help

    okay.

    I have a button. when user clicks the button, I want a field to add +1 to its total. this should be extremely easy to figure out for someone who knows more about fields than me.

    basically it should look something like this

    on mouseUp me
    go to page 2
    retrieve number from field
    add 1 to that number
    replace field with new number
    end

    there was a similar post about this but the lingo didnt work when I tried it.

    do something like this (we'll call your field myField):

    myField.text = string(integer(myField.text) + 1)

    myNum = value(member("MyField").text)
    MyNum = MyNum + 1
    member("MyField").text = string(MyNum)

    Right. I should have clarified that I assumed that myField = member
    "MyField"

    sorry but your script didnt work.

    the 0 wont advance to a 1 in the field. and yes I changed "myField" to the right name.

    I solved it on my own. You were all incorrect.

    The way to do this is with global scripts updating a text member.

    Thanks anyway for your attempts.
