The Answer is a value that reports the latest input into the Ask () and Wait block. Unlike variables, when used in scripts, the value of the answer is case-sensitive.
The following blocks can be used in conjunction with this value:
- Answer - The stage monitor and reporter block that reports the value of the answer
- Ask () and Wait - Sets the value to something which the user inputs
As this value stores inputed text, it is very useful where a script has to refer to what has been inputed. For example, there are chatbots that let the Scratcher input their name - if the script needed to see the name, the Answer value could be used.
