Button.Text Expression

Allows using the text value of a button in a compare two values condition to determine what actions to take upon clicking the button.

It would eliminate the need to create a separate instance variable (that usually ends up being the same as the text) to differentiate instances of buttons. Generally more readable than using numerical values in an instance variable to do the same (or IID/UID).


+ Button: On clicked

----+ System: Button.Text = "Submit"
-> (no actions)

----+ System: Button.Text = "Reset"
-> (no actions)
