Output text as I type

Hi guys, I’m totally new to bubble and this is my first question.

I’d like to create e.g. a text input. When the user types, I want a real time output elsewhere on the page. Is this possible?


Hi there, @raedmund… the simplest form of what you have described can be done by putting an input or multiline input element on a page, and then put a text element on the page and set the content of the text element to the input’s or multiline input’s value. Is that what you are trying to do?


Hi Mike.

Yes it is. I’ve just found a video on autobinding. I think that’s what I’m trying to do.

Cheers for the very fast response. Amazing.

Autobinding is the way to go if you want to save the text to a field in a data type and then display the saved text somewhere else. What I described would show the text that is being typed without saving it anywhere.

Oh. I thought that autobinding didn’t change the database. I’ll have to think about this one.
