Let's start with a simple example:
We're having a button callback that calculates the numeric field value from two other numeric fields in the application.
function ButtonPushed(app, event)
app.VariableAField1.Value = app.VariableBField2.Value*app.VariableCField3.Value
Then we call a helper function
function helpfun(app.VariableAField1.Value, app.VariableBField2.Value)
x = app.VariableBField2.Value
y = app.VariableAField1.Value;
If we had a bit more variables to pass in the helpfun, then input arguments in the helpfun would be quite long, and maybe unreadable.
The way that I did is to work with public properties, which I defined in the helper function and called within startupFcn. But, public properties operate in a similar way in Application (or am I wrong?) as the global variables operate in scripts, so that is what I am worried about.
Solution with properties:
I would appreciate a light discussion on this question.
If this question should be on the pile of questions that are related to the usage of global variables, I welcome its confirmation and locking (with the suggestion of the common practice).
Thank you in advance.
