LocalizeVariables

LocalizeVariables
is an option to Manipulate which determines whether the values of variables associated with controls should be localized.
  • With the default setting LocalizeVariables->True, DynamicModule is used to localize variables to each displayed instance of the Manipulate expression.
  • With LocalizeVariables->False, the variables are treated as global, and can be set and accessed outside the Manipulate expression.
By default Manipulate variables are localized:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
By disabling LocalizeVariables, the variables are treated as global:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
