initialize textfield's text

Hi Guys,

I am fiddeling around with API v4.

On startup of my scripts gui, I’d like to display a textfield with the content of .

If I start the script with an empty instrument, where no sample exists, the variable is nil of course, so the script fails.

Does anyone have a good idea how I could catch that exception?

I’d prefer to run a kind of initializer beforehand, but I did not come up with a nice solution.

Kind regards, Chris

Mmm, what about two textfields inside an if clause? One for startup, one for later?

Well, I found a solution using global variables,… I am new to lua, well, well <_<

If not == nil then
