## Set Value as Global Variable

Hi,

I want to update a NumberColEditBox in a report using global variables.  I have tried various combinations of Eval and Parse, but without success.  I am using JMP9.

/*

// This command works:

reportX[ NumberColEditBox( 1 ) ] << Set Values( [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] );

// These commands do not work, and generate an "Invalid matrix token" error:

a = 1;

b = 2;

c = 3;

d = 4;

reportX[ NumberColEditBox( 1 ) ] << Set Values( [ a, b, c, d ] );

reportX[ NumberColEditBox( 1 ) ] << Set Values( Eval( [ a, b, c, d ] ) );

reportX[ NumberColEditBox( 1 ) ] << Set Values( [ Eval( a) , Eval( b ), Eval( c ), Eval( d ) ] );

reportX[ NumberColEditBox( 1 ) ] << Set Values( Eval( Parse( [ a, b, c, d ] ) ) );

*/

I suspect my problem is with difficulty putting Global Variables into a matrix.

Any help is appreciated!  Thanks.

## Re: Set Value as Global Variable

You can evaluate and convert a list into matrix using Matrix(List).

// JMP 9

nw=new window("test", ncb=numbercoleditbox("ncb",[1,1,1,1]));

L={a,b,c,d}={1,2,3,4};

M=matrix(evallist(L));

ncb<<setvalues(M);

// JMP 10

// It's easier in JMP 10 where <<set  accepts a list directly.

// Nr of rows also changes automatically in JMP10

nw=new window("test", ncb=numbercoleditbox("ncb",[1]));

L={a,b,c,d}={1,2,3,4};

ncb<<set(L);

Works great.  Thanks!
