Setting custom variable values for part studio imported into feature script?

I am new to feature script: I've followed a lot of tutorials and become a bit overwhelmed at trying to something that is likely very obvious and simple.

I have a part studio that ends with a linear pattern. I'd like to turn it into a feature script so I can call it in other studios and set the number of repeats. I've finally gotten my script to recreate my original part studio parts, but I am not sure how to pass user defined repeat numbers.

Here is my code below. (I apologise for the butchered script copied from various tutorials and forum answers). The variables in my original part studio were called "#nlong" and "#nwide" and set the number of repeats in two directions for my linear pattern.

FeatureScript 2180;
import(path : "onshape/std/common.fs", version : "2180.0");
gfbinbase::import(path : "d2a068a57d0ba244eb45d72e", version : "e8086df0e3d24d26ffa92a3b");

annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "gfbinbase" }
export const gfbinbase = defineFeature(function(context is Context, id is Id, definition is map)
        annotation { "Name" : "nwide" }
        isInteger(definition.nwide, POSITIVE_COUNT_BOUNDS);
        annotation { "Name" : "nlong" }
        isInteger(definition.nlong, POSITIVE_COUNT_BOUNDS);

        // Build a thing in a separate context
        var contextWithThing is Context = gfbinbase::build();
        // Add thing's context to the current Part Studio
        opMergeContexts(context, id + "gfbinbase", {
            "contextFrom" : contextWithThing

If anyone can suggest further tutorials, other helpful posts, I will be very grateful!
