  • Hi Guys.. anyone know if I can replace 10000 with variable? can I inject a variable I initialize with ng-init="myvar=10000;" into this code?
    onclick="setTimeout(function() { location.reload(); }, 10000);clearTimeout(this);"
    onclick="setTimeout(function() { location.reload(); }, myvar );clearTimeout(this);"

  • Yes provided myVar is a global variable in your window object.

  • Does ng-init create a global variable

  • No, it creates a variable on the AngularJS scope where you declare it.

    Maybe post a full explanation of what you are trying to accomplish.

  • ok I would like to set a angular variable Adjust=false 10 seconds after it is set to true by an ng-click. So I did not know how to do this but when I refresh the screen notice page resets Adjust=false on ng-init so this was a just a way to reset the variable because I didn't know another way. Is there a way I can use <ma-calc with time to set the value false. I have only used ma-calc to evaluate and expression to true or false then use this output variable in the ng-show however if I give output the same name as Adjust where iit is already created will it re-create or update the variable?
    <ma-calc input="Adjust&&!time.seconds() >= 10" output="Adjust"></ma-calc>

    Not following the rest of the paragraph, its not very clear so I'm just going to respond to this first part.

    <div class="ma-designer-root" id="0c3ce01e-c415-4192-a638-e1e9a8148243" style="width: 1366px; height: 768px; position: relative;" ng-init="page = {}">
        <ma-button id="ffc38ad4-1d9e-4aa5-84d7-924132cdd70f" raised="true" style="position: absolute; left: 131px; top: 70px;" label="Click me" ng-click="page.textVisible = true; page.firstTick = true"></ma-button>
        <div id="4483a29a-3ff9-4792-94b3-eaa724bc8b54" style="position: absolute; left: 375px; top: 272px;" ng-show="page.textVisible">Text visible</div>
        <ma-now id="da77aae1-f031-4e13-a241-4e038d1ec11e" ng-if="page.textVisible" style="position: absolute; left: 400px; top: 80px;" update-interval="10 seconds" on-change="page.firstTick ? page.firstTick = false : page.textVisible = false"></ma-now>
        <pre id="c81e362b-d4d5-46c2-8e3e-234a4a8c1cd6" style="position: absolute; left: 352px; top: 277px;" ng-bind="page | json"></pre>

    Note the ng-init to create an object on the outside scope. This is needed otherwise setting a value in the ma-now directive's on-change attribute will only set the value for its local scope.
