Re: SQLite Foreign Key Constraint

I updated the attached stack to v1.1 fixing errors while creating tables with foreign keys activated. I found buried in the SQLite documentation, https://sqlite.org/foreignkeys.html "It is not possible to enable or disable foreign key constraints in the middle of a multi-statement transaction (when ...

Re: LC Buddy collaborative coding

Hi AndyP. Another thought. This would be useful where teacher demonstrates to students in computer lab, or where software startup coworkers interacting around a table include flex-hour worker at home, or a regional LC usergroup demonstrates a lesson or topic to members at home. Terry

Re: SQLite Foreign Key Constraint

Hi Bogs. Thank you for the BLOB links. Yes I will look into it. For now I've concluded its too difficult for me to implement, so I'm posting the stack. Stack "DB SQLite" for personal use or create an SQLite database for your client's use as a front-end. I recommend the Splash Screen standalone metho...

Re: SQLite Foreign Key Constraint

Hi Dunbarx. This project was a front-end for any SQLite db. It would have been much easier hard coding for one SQLite db. I agree that a flat-file LibreOffice spreadsheet with some validity cells, or a flat-file all LC solution would be easier still. I just wanted to try my hand at SQLite. I'm not c...

SQLite Foreign Key Constraint

Hi all. Given three therapists Beth, Nancy, and James, the user wants to enter a therapist name assigned to a patient. The db wants the therapist primary key id integer. I invented a gadget to show the three names for the user to choose but put the corresponding primary key integer into the data ent...

Re: LC Buddy collaborative coding

Hi AndyP. This is a great idea and I encourage you to continue. I'm surprised no one has commented. I see two difficulties. There might be collaborators in different time zones that make real-time interaction awkward. If a collaborator could post comments and suggestions then the principal could rev...

Re: Asking a little help with datagrid or file locations

Hi Valiant. The datagrid form is the most complex object in LiveCode. New coders seem drawn to it like moth to flame, get burned and quickly lose interest. There's lots of LiveCode to explore without ever going near a datagrid. Here's a few links you might find helpful. An essential Datagrid PDF: ht...

Re: Printing delivery note

Hi cbarbal. An alternative to paper invoicing is PDF invoicing using a simple table field. Attached is a demo stack. PDF each invoice separately and email to the client for payment saving print & postage costs, or PDF all invoices each week for business records. Scripts for both methods are included...

Spanish Voice Install

My Summer project was to make a Mexican Spanish tutorial stack. There are free SAPI5 Spanish voices to download. If you'd like to try some Spanish, I would be interested in your experience installing a text to speech voice and suggestions for the stack. Terry WINDOWS 7-10: Neuber has a free utility ...

FullScreenMode For Mobile

Jacque & Richard. I've been following with interest your recent posts about fullScreenMode vs manual resizing objects in mobile. I have a few lingering questions. 1) Stacks have their resizable property "true" by default. I suspect they must remain true for either method of resizing. I've often acci...
