Is there any way for me to create multiple limits on my edit field input in app design? So far this is what I tried out but this hasn't worked for me
switch app.From_Units_Temp.Value
case 'Celcius'
app.InitialValueEditField_Temp.Limits = [-273.15 Inf];
case 'Farenheit'
app.InitialValueEditField_Temp.Limits = [-459.67 Inf];
case 'Kelvin'
app.InitialValueEditField_Temp.Limits = [0 Inf];
case 'Rankine'
app.InitialValueEditField_Temp.Limits = [0 Inf];
end

Hi,
What if you use UIspinners instead of EditFields ? And set the limits out there.

So I'm trying to make a unit converter app and this specific piece of code is for my temperature conversions. I need to make sure that the inputs that users give are within my specified limits but since temperature has different limits for different cases (for example: kelvin would be zero to infinity but celcius would be -273 to infinity) I'm trying to assign multiple limits my EditFieldBox (this is where the user will input their desired value to me converted).
also from my code: app.From_Units_Temp.Value - is a dropdown of different temperature units to choose from, thus thats where the switch statements come from
