Detect when button click textbox contains what

Hi, when clicking a button how can I detect if the letter 'a' is in the textbox then something will happen?

Something like this?



oh yes that is how but let me test it out and after that i am telling you pls wait

but the thing is that i have to enter a character individually

for example, if I want to type "ayproductions' i have to type 'a' then 'y' each character individually which is quite tedious. i wan to enter like 'ayproductions' at once

This might give you some ideas...


.... that's off Topic, a completely different requirement :upside_down_face:

um thats not really what i wanted

actually i want to enter all characters at once @ChrisWard

How would you expect to do that? Two possibilities:

  1. The texts to be entered at once are standard words or phrases for the App, in which case they can be stored as a list and selected from a List View or List Picker.

  2. You have massive hands with 13 fingers on each (one for each letter of the alphabet).


If you do not understand it,

I want to enter 'ay' the output should be 29 but when I enter it then output shows 2 which should not be. Is there any way to do it like this?

Show your blocks and describe precisely what the purpose is.

check the 'decode' procedure and test it in the companion

Do you want this,


A 2
Y 9

AY 29

I didn't read your .aia, but the name T9 suggest this.


I have no idea, what the goal is.
Maybe something like this:

this is not how i want, it only generates 2 but if i press decode again it shows 2 but not 9

Try this, using dictionary and replace all mappings block
