EASY: Rename Loop Counter in Loop Program Node

Summary

Add possibility to rename Loop Counter variable in Loop Program Node view

What is it?

Add possibility to rename Loop Counter variable in Loop Program Node view. This could just be converting the JLabel to a JTextField and binding that to the data model.

Why is it needed?

Today, you need to do it the hacky way; hence add the “Set Initial Variable Values”, enter that view, rename the variable, go back to Loop view. That’s just silly. And Loop_1, Loop_2, etc. is not good names to have in a program if you want it to be readable, so you need to do this hacky step for your customer’s sake.

you can change the count variable in palletising, im glad i found a work around for the loop variables, but i agree with nily it there should be a option to rename the loop variable within the loop paramters
