    retrieve variable value from local Storage and display on canvas

    sgho017 Level 1


      I'm working on a project that has multiple html files (the projects are split into 12 so 12 different edge projects and im linking them via window.open()). I have a variable that keeps track of correct answers stored in LocalStorage html object. I have managed to get the localStorage variable to increment up by one each time the object is correct however my last step is to get the variable and them display the result on the canvas. I have tried


      var outPut localStorage.getItem(' ') method to retrieve the variable then used the set and get method to display the result however it doesn't work. Im not sure if I need a for loop to go though the localStorage and get the elements




      // insert code to be run when the composition is fully loaded here

      yepnope({nope:['jquery-ui-1.10.0.custom.min.js','jquery.ui.touch-punch.min.js'],complete: init}); // load the jquery files
      sym.setVariable("myScore", 0);

      var c = localStorage["myCount"] || 0; //loading from localStorage

      function init(){

      sym.getSymbol("barLimit").$('scrubber').draggable({start: function(e){

      },drag: function(e,ui){ // start: ...  // Find original position of dragged image

      var leftLimitScrubber  = sym.getSymbol('barLimit').$('scrubber').position().left; // position of the scrubber
      var rightLimitScrubber  = sym.getSymbol('barLimit').$('leftLimit').position().left;

      var LimitTwoLeft  = sym.getSymbol('barLimit').$('rightLimit').position().left;

      if(leftLimitScrubber == rightLimitScrubber){
        sym.getSymbol('correctBar1').play('in'); //
        sym.getSymbol('incorrectBar1').play('out'); //
        sym.getSymbol('thumbsDown1').play('out'); //
        sym.getSymbol('thumbsUp1').play('in'); //
        sym.getSymbol('congrats').play('in'); //

      localStorage["myCount"] = parseInt(c)+1; //Converting string to number, and then saving it
      console.log("numberOfCorrectAnswers", localStorage["myCount"]);

      var finalScore = sym.getVariable("myScore");
      finalScore = c;
      sym.setVariable("myScore", finalScore);


      } else if(leftLimitScrubber == LimitTwoLeft){




      axis: "x",
      containment: "parent"




             //for (var i = 0; i < localStorage.length; i++){ // iterate throught the local storage
               //var getItem = localStorage.getItem(localStorage.key(i));
                //if(getItem == 'numberOfCorrectAnswers' ){








      The above is the code for the 12th project in  this projects it needs to display the variable inside the object localStorage and display on the canvas.

      Any help will mean a lot. Thank You in advance


      P.S edge animate has a lot of bugs hard to code in
