Controlling stimuli duration with $ entry in text box in the builder

I must be overlooking something really obvious, but does anyone know what my $ entry into the frame duration box is not working? (hopefully you can see the screen shot ok)

All the variables are in the spreadsheet, (including a column headed frameN) and the others are working fine. But I also want to put the timing of my stimuli in from the spreadsheets, because the individual frame durations differ. I can’t figure out why it isn’t working!

Please can someone enlighten me? Thank you so much,
Christina

Off the top of my head, I think frameN is a variable used by psychopy, so maybe there’s a naming collision? Try renaming your column to something else like frameDur

That was it! Changed to frameDur and all is running like clockwork. Good thinking, thanks for your help Daniel!

Thank you for asking/answering this question!
