In my app designer program I have several Numeric Edit Fields, I would like to set them to the already declared variables before in the base workspace when my application opens.
Is there a way I can load the existing Variable and put them in the already existing EditField?
Thanks already, I look out to your answers.

initialize your EditFields using evalin(), such as: app.EditField1.Value=evalin('base','myvar1'); app.EditField2.Value=evalin('base','myvar2'); ...

Thanks for your answer Xi!
Can you solve the DropDowns in the same way? If I initialize the DropDown with a String (which is one of it's possibilitys) will it work?
Best Regards

For example, if you have mystring={'A','B','C'}; in the workspace,
you can set the DropDown.Items in the startup function of app.

Check out this demo that shows how to produce a UITable that lists all variables in the workspace, their size, and class, and allows the user to use a checkbox to select which variables should be loaded into the app.
