Cannot set component properties followed by a dollar sign with code

It seems that I cannot set component properties followed by a dollar sign with code.

The warning tells you what the issue is: you want to vary this setting, yet the field is set to be “constant”, which is a contradiction. Change the field to update as required (eg “set every repeat”, as you have done with the “text” field).

Also (not that it matters), the $ sign is optional in this field: note that it appears to the left of the field, indicating that Builder assumes that anything you type in this field can be assumed to be interpretable as code.
