Mathcad Prime 10 - Textbox Script

Hello, 

 

I am trying to utilize the new advanced controls textbox functionality by changing the background color of the textbox based on the input condition. 

 

The input condition would be a defined variable called "Ratio" and whether or not it is above or below 1.

 

The textbox would be assigned to the variable "Check", if Ratio is above 1 than check would read "No Good" with a red background, If Ratio is above 1 than check would read "OK" with a green background. 

 

I have been searching through previous posts and had some help but am getting stuck with what appears to be passing in input variable "Ratio". I keep getting the following error.

I have put the file I am working on below for reference.

Looks like it solves your problem.

 

BTW, the Textbox in the sheet you posted contains no script at all!

Hi Werner_E, 

 

Yes I have used that reference you posted. it was very helpful. My issue was adding the input variable when right clicking the textbox box. I should have added my variable this way instead of trying to pass it in within the script. I than can collapse the input variables so only what I want to see is shown.

I appreciate your help. 

Thank you!

Fine that you found how to use it - its not really intuitive (especially when we have more than one input value).

You know that you can also hide the lefthand side (the "check:=") and collapse the space it would occupy. That way only the textbox is visible. See Solved: Re: Mathcad Prime 10 TextBox - PTC Community
