I'd like to enter data in a variable editor and then incorporate that variable in a live script.
Is this possible? I would think it would be possible to generate variable defining code from the variable editor that I could then paste into a live script, but I can't figure out how.


Variable editor -> you mean the normal script??
Thank you @Stephen Cobeldick, will be really useful.

If you want to generate a code to recreate a variable, then try following ways
  • Using command window, variableName);
filename and variable are both char arrays.
  • Right-click the variable in the Workspace window and click Save As. Then select m-file as target file option.
After creating these files, you can use the generated code to recreate variables with same values. However, this will only work for variables of small size. You can configure the maximum size of the variable from Preferences > Workspace.


Thank you!
