Global text variables

If you inherit a global text from a main component with a function and you link a text global in a subcomponent (same and different name) to the main component, the formula is inserted as text instead of it being calculated

main component
- global text <name> = $df(YYYY)$

- global text <name1> = (inherit <name> from parent) => shows as $df(YYYY)$
- global text <name2> = $gv(name1)$ => shows as $df(YYYY)$

Even after save, close and reopen

Expected behavior: get the value of <name> in <name1> and <name2>


Problem still in version 3.23

Problem still in 3.25b715214.

Real dealbreaker on modular komponents.

Please fix this

Confirmed, still preset on 3.26

Thank you

This also affects list globals.

gv(wicon) $wf(icon, 0)$##today, $wf(icon, 1)$##tomorrow

It doesn't actually execute the code. If I were to call the variable in a text element with $gv(wicon, null, 0)$ I'd expect to get something like SUNNY, PCLOUDY, etc. Instead I literally get $wf(icon, 0)$


I see there is a change in the new version (3.26).
I don't see the text anymore when linking with global text var.
When I use gv(...) in text object I can see the formula instead of the result.

By the way, I like the option to use scripting in color global vars. Tnx

Hi! I experiencing this on 3.29 :(

This will be fixed?

My problem is into list global from subcomponent, I get $wf(icon, 1)$ instead of "SHOWER". But I think is the same error...

I hope so. Not in 3.30 for now.

Still an issue in v3.36

Any news on this problem? Tnx

Still an issue. I thought you previously said this was a known bug that was very difficult to fix. I think I put a support ticket in.

Did you issue an update? My play store hasn't notified me of anything recently.

It is a known bug. It's acknowledged. I was just curious if there was any progress in fixing it. I get some regular updates since I joined the beta program in the store.
