Backwards/Forwards step Counter?


    Oct 09 2019 | 12:12 am
    So i'm looking to make a step counter that can be toggled to move back and forth by one step via left and right arrow key inputs respectively. I already have two counters set up that allow it to move backwards by one, but I can't figure out how to get the counter to proceed forward by one correctly (a clearer example, if the counter is at 15, it can go backwards to 14, but skips directly over to 16 instead of going back over 15). For context, I'm attempting to make a visual progression of images and text but would like for the user to be able to go backwards through the "slides" if needed. If anyone has any solutions for a fix to this problem, it would be greatly appreciated.

      I am not sure I understand your problem. May be this patch is a solution.

      dont use the counter object for that. - make "up" an 1 and "down" a -1 - send them into [accum] - add the result to the status quo of the destination.

      It would be more helpful to provide patch which is not working. That would be more educative, cause one would be pointed to mistakes, and not only getting ready solutions. Now to the thema - there is nothing wrong about using counter, only in case one wold not want to restart after hitting max count. And if more then just 5 objects would be used to make it increase or dicrease with keystrokes, than I would add scrolling....
