How can I check if a variable was changed ?

That’s quite an open question.

Depends what you’re doing and when you want to know when the variable was changed.

Maybe something like…

Before a function:
Save the variable into a temp variable.
Do the function
Then check if the variable is different to the temp variable.

In a scene:
Save the variable to a temp variable in the ready function.
In the process function or a timer function check if the variable matches the temp variable, if they are different, call a signal or other function.

ok thanks I think that should work but I thought there is a function or something else that gives a signal when the variable is changed.

Perhaps “setget” could help here
