Anybody want to do some consulting work?

I'm looking for a consultant, preferably in or around the New York City area, to help finish some code that I've written. I'm looking for four things: 1) To debug some of the code that I've written 2) To write some new code 3) To re-architect the code so that I can move the sqlite database that I ha...

Re: DataGrid Question

Does the datagrid helper really work? Do you know who is behind this (who is the Slug)?

Does it work on all platforms?

Thanks,

Peter

DataGrid Question

I've got a datagrid that I've created and the column labels are starting to get long. They're wasting valuable real estate. Is there anyway that I can have the column labels take up two rows or do a wrap around when I create them in the inspector? As an example, the column label is about 20 - 25 cha...

Re: Need to add variables depending on the answer to a question

This almost works. The syntax for the show command is "show fld lbField1". I've also hidden the text field. I can't figure out the syntax to show the text field and then accept the answer that is put in. If the answer to What time is it? is 4:00, I'm stuck on how to show the text entry field and get...

Re: Need to add variables depending on the answer to a question

I agree with you that a pulldown menu would be much better than entering text into a field. I'll make that change at some point. I'm still getting used to the syntax of this language and how things are done. Basically I have three options in a text field. Lets call my options 1, 2 or 3. If the user ...

Re: Need to add variables depending on the answer to a question

I've used the ask statement to get the information that I need, but I don't like the way that it looks. Maybe it's a pet peeve. I have a lot of white space on the card that asks the original question, and I'd like to figure out a way to put the questions on the same card as the rest of the informati...

Re: HELP! Buttons have disappeared

I figured out what I did so I thought that I'd tell everyone in the hope that no one else does this. On the inspector for the card I checked the can't delete and can't modify options. I thought that it would just prevent the button with all of my code behind it from disappearing accidently, but it r...

Third party SQLite browers

Has anyone downloaded, purchased or reviewed any third party SQLite browers? I googled SQLite browsers and a few came up. They seem to make it easier to set up databases and tables, to view data, to add or delete columns and to move data into tables (i.e. some of them support multiple types of file ...

Re: HELP! Buttons have disappeared

Thanks. I found a copy of the code that I had printed out a few days ago and it took me a few hours but I rewrote everything. I was playing with the inspector for the stack and I must have done something. Now, no matter whether I'm in edit mode or not, the inspector and code icons are grayed out. I ...

HELP! Buttons have disappeared

I just opened up a stack and a button has disappeared. There's over a hundred lines of code behind it. Where/how can I find the button? I have no idea what happened to it. Does anyone know where a back up of the stack would be? I'm on a Mac. Does the Mac store a backup somewhere?

Thanks,

Peter

Need to add variables depending on the answer to a question

I've got a variable called property_type. Depending on the answer to the property_type question I will want to ask more questions. I need follow up information. My code checks for the answer to property code as follows: on closeField global prop switch upper(fld m_prop_type) case "CONDO" put 1 into ...

Re: Porting an app from a Mac to an iPad

I paid to be an iOS developer and now they have to send me a disk or something. It's supposed to take up to 5 days. I can't believe that I can't download it from Apple.
