Re: Using an Option Menu to Get Data from a Data Grid

I got tired of not understanding how to get data from a Data Grid, so I tried a Table Field. I can get data, just not the right data. Given the Table Field named "TestTable" with the following data: Name Age ID Joe 20 67 Nancy 30 23 Why does: answer item 1 of line 2 of field "TestTable" Produce: "Jo...

Re: Using an Option Menu to Get Data from a Data Grid

Bogs - You may be completely correct. When I first started looking at this I somehow determined that a simple table would not work, but no longer recall why! (I may be overloaded by paradigm shifts - 40 years of programming gets in the way...) Maybe I m just too used to dealing with databases? I wil...

Using an Option Menu to Get Data from a Data Grid

I cannot be the first person to try this and not the last to need help with this. The example is for some sort of sales system, where an order consists of a section of items and then is stored in a separate file, tp later be recalled as necessary. I suppose I could use databases for this, but the pr...

Re: PopUp to TextLabel?

Yeah, a bit different. I decided to go with the Option thing rather than the PupUp, same result just a different way of displaying things.

Thanks.

Just out of lingering curiosity, how do I get the selection of a PopUp Menu?

Re: PopUp to TextLabel?

Yes I have "explored" the lessons posted above, all very helpful and I thank you all for that. I think I have the Option Menu figured out. My latest questions are about the PopUp Menu - I should not have drifted the conversation. Used on what I have seen, I think the Option Menu is what I am looking...

Re: PopUp to TextLabel?

Thanks for the well-wish. I am able to read large high-contrast text now! Anyway, I started digging around and have come up with some things that are working and some things that are not. I have a stack with 4 controls on it - A Choice Menu, a Label Field to display its contents a PopUp Menu and a L...

Re: PopUp to TextLabel?

Thanks for the replies. I have managed to injure my left eye and so am not as nimble with the keyboard as I like to be - I am healing and will get back to this as soon as I am able to focus properly! Sorry for radio silence!

PopUp to TextLabel?

I am a longtime programmer who has been "out of the game" and am trying to return to the hobby after a long absence. I need a little nudge here. I am just trying to get restarted with how LC works, I have a lot settled but got stuck on this problem, I am hoping someone can either provide a simple ex...

Re: Why does this not work? (radio button group values)

I did not see any output for "button the hilitedButtonName of grp 1". It is a null.

I get the rest just fine. Using a button as a container is an interesting concept.

Re: Why does this not work? (radio button group values)

Cool, and interesting. When working with radio buttons I am used to just working with the displayed label, but I will try to remember this for the future. What was your "intent" with the second part of that answer statement? What was "btn" supposed to be? I would hate to miss an opportunity to learn...

Re: Why does this not work? (radio button group values)

By "put some text into those buttons" did you mean a label? If so, then yes I did. All that happened when I pressed the pushbutton was that the NAME of the hilighted radio button was "answered". I split the answer into two answers and the part with "btn" answered as blank. I have messed around with ...
