As the name suggest Number bricks are usually used to do counting and do manipulation on Numbers. It is one of the simplest bricks section we have in the Appmaker. All the bricks in this section is depended on other inputs usually a button input will make it good.
The 3 components in the Number bricks as follows
- Daily Counter
- Random number generator
It is widely used for counting the number of single we are getting. It can get 3 different inputs, count up, count down and then reset. It can send the counter value as output. We can also tell how it should get increment by. It is fixed.
Daily counter is similar to Counter. It also can get 3 different inputs, count up, count down and then reset. It can send the counter value as output. But the difference is it will work for a small period of time, within that time limit all the increment and decrement is done.
Random Number Generator
It is used to generate a number between two different number. Say between a minimum number and maximum number. We can also make it to allow same number twice.
With this three bricks we can do many things, but it is dependent on other things. These bricks cannot independently be used. It needs to receive input source from bricks like buttons and to show the output it requires text box for sure. In our next post we can use basic bricks like text box and button to generate the output and give the input.
