Adding Variables To Variable Watch

Hey everyone.

Quick question as the title suggests. In sure I'm overlooking something simple, but I can't figure it out. How do I add a permanent variable to the Variable watch control?

The reason I ask is that I'm using Roborealm for face/object recognition using a $RR_NV_AVR_OBJ_NAME[0] variable, but every time I close the project down and reopen it later, the above variable disappears from the list and I get a debug message saying variable not found (or words to that effect). So to get my recognition script to run, I have to show the camera a recognised object or face for the variable watch to catch it again, then I can use the script with no error messages. If I can add this variable as a permanent item in the watcher, it would solve the problem.

The watcher shows all available variables. If it's not there it's not set.

Add it to an init script to add an entry for the variable to avoid it not existing...


$variable = "null"

Replace $variable as necessary.
