# Can you make variables update real-time?

So basically, variables that report stuff like the X position or Y position of an object don't report real-time. And I don't like it.

Scratch has a very good system of these variable reporters because they update real-time and don't make scripts become pains to code.

I think it's like this because jens doesn't want to update variable watchers every frame. My workaround is to just create my own watcher (e.g. forever {clear all; go to (0) (0); write (var)})

i agree

Or use the ones @joecooldoo and I made.

my usual solution:

if you are ok with javascript
world.childThatIsA(StageMorph).watcherUpdateFrequency = -1


Um...okay.

I'll see for size. I remember size updating real time was not a thing

and your problem is what exactly?
