Let’s see how to input and output data in a Raptor flowchart in this post. In Raptor, we can use an Input symbol to input data. You can drag an Input symbol onto your flowchart and double-click in the symbol. When an Input symbol is executed in the flowchart, a prompt dialog is displayed prompting the user to enter the input value. The Enter Input dialog box shows a prompt and variable name as shown in the below picture.
In the Enter Prompt Here enter the text you want to be displayed. This text should be enclosed within quotes. The text typed in this box will be displayed to the user when the flowchart is run.
The Enter Variable Here area holds the name of the variable where the data entered will be stored. The information entered will be stored in a variable and used later in the flowchart.
An Output symbol displays a variable value to the MasterConsole window when the flowchart is executed. You can output text,variable etc using the output symbol.
The Enter Output dialog asks you to specify the information and variables to output.
