Counter and Increment Counter how does it work?

How does the Mendix 9 counter and increment counter work ? The new ‘counter’  and ‘counter increment’  from the Toolbox  I mean. So I created a counter in a Microflow.  Give this counter a name ‘counter1’ Start value 0.    I use increment with the same counter1  as a name. But there is no variable $counter1  ??     What am I missing here ?

when you want to count the tag naming.


What I do to manage a counter is:

Create variable, where I set the name of the counter and set the start value.

Change variable, where I set the increment/decrement of the counter.

I hope this can help you
