I'm trying to figure out a way to show changing digits, like on a digital timer. I'd like to be able to connect it somehow to an xpresso float slider which I could slide to change the digits.

For the life of me, I can't think of how to do it.

Any ideas?

you can pass the value from a User Data field to a Text Spline's Text port in XPresso. Add a User Data field to the scene (it can be on any object, I would go with text spline) which has an Integer Slider interface and pass the value from that into the Text. If you want a true timer (more than just seconds) as opposed to just numbers you might have to do some math in xpresso or maybe use two (or more) sliders one for seconds one for minutes etc but I might be thinking too far ahead...
