Debug readout in composer preview


I’d really like a native way to check the status of my variables in the composer preview. Right now I am manually setting up text objects on the screen to update when a variable updates so that I can track the data flow throughout my projects. A simple debug readout with current values for variables would be much nicer.


Hi Rick,

When you talk about your variables, I assume you’re using the Global variable Interface Asset. Since this is 1 way out of a thousand to get some variables, especially when you start creating your own Interface Assets, making a generic mechanism here seems pretty complex.

A hint I can give you: When I create an XP with lots of variables (can be properties of a Web API IA), I create an Experience layer with:

  • all my texts bound to the variables in a group with a rectangle background
  • a toggle button that show/hides that group
