The Project Structure

1. Prepare a Basic Layout

Let's start with Main Container with two included components; Text Input and Text.

  1. Place in a new Container, name it cntMain, and set up its Item Flex -> Stretch; Horizontal Alignment -> Center; Vertical Alignment -> Middle

  2. Into the cntMain put a Text Input and name it txtInput.

  3. Right under place a new Text and set up its Properties as follows: ID -> txtInput; Text Style -> Bold; Font Size -> Large

2. Bind a Dynamic Value

Associating Dynamical Value by a Function can be done in just two steps.

  1. Switch Value of txtOutput to dynamic Function by clicking on the right side ƒx icon.

  2. Edit txtOutput Value -> txtInput.value

Watch your Canvas what happens if you will type just txtInput.

The Conclusion

Binding and referencing Values are efficient and always reflect the state in the Data Explorer.
