I wrote this sentence

Updates to the context variables are shown below this panel.

It is supposed to means something like

Fields show the values specified to update the context variables

Does that convey this?

  • To me it sounds that "below this panel" the user can see to what the variables have already been updated. But it doesn't really come from the meaning of "update", more of the feeling I get. – Victor Bazarov Aug 17 '15 at 17:48
  • To get round the ambiguity @Victor refers to, you could call them pending updates if the variables haven't yet been updated. (If they have, obviously you're simply showing the current values of the variables - equivalent to the most recent update/change.) – FumbleFingers Aug 17 '15 at 17:54

    I want to say they are the values we entered to update somethings (to change the variables, these are the values), then you mean it doesn't convey that. – Ahmad Aug 17 '15 at 18:19
