Pulling content from a specific “cell” in a repeater is possible, but it’s a bit complicated and requires being pretty comfortable with how repeaters work: Load_Specific_Cell_Data.rp (90.2 KB)
It’s kind of hard to describe what’s happening so I hope this makes (at least some) sense:
The only time a widget inside a repeater is truly “unique”, is at the time it is created. So if you want the text inside “Widget D” on “row 5”, you have to ask for it when the repeater is busy creating “row 5”, because after that, the name “Widget D” refers to the one on “row 6”. That’s why, if you wait until the repeater is completely finished loading, and say, “Get the text on ‘Widget D’,” it’s returning the text on the last thing that had that name. I’m hoping that looking at the sample file will give some better context without me having to write a long and boring essay. The short version is that the repeater checks for conditions as it builds and populates content as needed. If the conditions change, the repeater rebuilds, checks again, and makes whatever changes are necessary.
I don’t know exactly what you’re trying to achieve, but I will say that this is a pretty complex method just to display some dynamic content. It’s possible there might be a far easier/faster way to get what you’re looking for.
