Introduction to Using Variables

Variables are powerful tools that help simplify automation within a skin.

A variable is like a bucket that stores information that can be later referenced. The variable can be named anything you like but usually represents the the information that it’s storing. Variables in Pano2VR can be a word/text, a number, or true/false. Once you name a variable and then give it a value, you can use actions and triggers to either change the value stored in the variable or to check the value.

In the tutorials below, you’ll learn how to use each type of variable.
