"Set component property" won't change data variable binding

I’m new so probably a dumb question. I have a container that displays text bound to a data variable using a simple formula to just display the result (from firebase). If I set up a button to then change that component property, pretty much to anything including static text, it doesn’t work. Is it correct that “change component property” won’t change this kind of data variable property?

Hi, it could be that the data variable schema doesn’t accept the new value, you could try using a page variable in between so you first set it from the data variable (or directly from the “Get record” / “Get collection” node on the data variable’s logic canvas), and then bind the changing value to the page variable.

Thanks I will try! Glad its not that I’m just crazy :slight_smile:
