Create Variable With Keyboard and Copy the instruction and the variable

I am programing a URCAP in what i use a JTextField to insert a value. When a push the JtextField i display the keyboard to insert the value for jtextfield and using the example of Cycle Counter Swing it creates a variable that i use to share the value of the jtextfield with another aplication.

The problem that i have is that when i copy the instrucction and i paste below in the robot program, if a i want to use the same value in the jtextfield i dont need to text this value again, then i dont use the keyboard and the new variable is not created.

Anybody knows how to create the variable without using the keyboard? I have tried to create the variable in the openView() but it doenst work.

Thank you for any clue

Can you show the code where you have implemented the variable creation?
