Wait For Variable

   

[FinalBuilder Professional Edition]

 

Wait for Variable pauses the project run until a given FinalBuilder variable has changed.

 

For an overview of "Wait For..." events, including specifics of the Wait Options, see this topic.

 

Note that this action can only be used from inside an ASync Action Group. Otherwise, the variable value will never change and the action can never unblock (the action will fail outright if it is run from outside an ASync Action Group.)

You can wait for the following conditions:

 

Wait For Value to Change

 

The action will unblock as soon as the value of the variable changes, relative to its value when the action first runs.

 

 

Match full string

 

The action will unblock as soon as the variable's value matches exactly the text in the "Text to Match" edit field.

 

 

Contains substring

 

The action will unblock as soon as the variable's value contains the text in the "Text to Match" edit field.

 

 

Matches regular expression

 

The action will unblock as soon as the variable's value matches the regular expression specified in the "Text to Match" edit field.

 

 

Text to Match

 

Enter the text to match against the condition. If the variable is a number, it is safe to enter numeric digits here. If the variable is boolean, use "True" and "False."
