Re: [NTLK] Help with Newtonscript

Do you just want to set the variable when the floatNGo view opens, or do you
want to change it subsequently?
If the former, try using the ViewSetupFormScript of your floatNGo, with
something like

StaticTextView.text := TopVar;

(StaticTextView must be declared to the FloatNGo, or alternatively you can
use the ViewSetupFormScript of the protoStaticText)

a variable set up as a slot in the top level is visible anywhere in the App.

If you want to change the value on the fly from somewhere else in the app,
use SetValue(), but note that you have to use the name of the link not the
name of the view to address the component of a linked subview
