You can edit or clear the text or values within user input fields, buttons, text widgets, or supported iBlocs on the screen. Review the video below to see an example of the action being built in Editor.

  1. Select the widget that will be the source for the interaction, e.g. the 'Fill Form' button.

  2. Open the Actions panel.

  3. Click the Add Action button.
    Note: You can also right click the widget and select Add Action from the menu

  4. Select the desired trigger, for example 'Click' and the desired action, 'Set Text or Value' and click the Next button.

  5. Click the Select widgets button, which will put the cursor in a 'targeting' mode that allows you to pick which the widget(s) for which you want to set or clear text/values.
    Note: It is important to name the widgets so that you know which widgets you will be editing in the Outline panel.
