Binding text of one window to another window

Hi,

Been playing with ignition for a bit and going to training soon, but have a question. I would like to make an “active” sidebar in my project in which when you click the text of a label in my north docked navigation pane, it changes a value or text in a label or navigation tree in my west side docked window. I am finding it hard to transfer data between windows/root containers.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank You!

You could use a client tag to achieve this. Create a Client Tag that is a string data type. Place a mouseReleased event on the label with

         system.tag.write("[Client] tagname", "string value")

in the script editor. Now bind the other label in your docked window, or whichever component your using, to the client tag.
