Assigns the input value to a variable.
Variables are used as placeholders for values such as numbers or strings of text. Variables allow for a lot of freedom in programming. Instead of having to type out a phrase many times or remember a number, computer scientists can use variables to reference them. Variable values can change throughout a program.
If no variable with the specified name has been created, this block can create a new named variable with the given value. If the variable already exists, its new value will replace its old value.
|value input||The value the variable is being set to|
|variable name||The name of the variable. The name can be chosen from a drop-down list or customized using the rename option.|
