Counter values can be displayed on each node, and these can be turned on or off for each counter on each node. You can also directly refer to the value of a Counter within the text of a node by using its wikiref e.g. [[CR:1234]], and the Counter value will be inserted into the node’s text. It will vary according to the current value of the Counter.
We have also developed a method to embed the Counter’s value within an image, somewhat similar to a Skin. These are known as Counter Displays – select this feature from the left side menu when editing a case.
For an example of how these work, check out this case: http://demo.openlabyrinth.ca/renderLabyrinth/index/307
While they are powerful, creating Counter Displays is a bit finicky. We have created an addendum to the main User Guide – you can download it from here.
