Re: Parsing arrays

Hi, Are there less buggy versions available? For such I'd recommend LC 6.7.10/11. It is, in my opinion, the last version actually deserving the attribute "Stable". For sure, it lacks a lot of the bells & whistles of the flashier new versions (7, 8, 9), and even a few useful new features. But it's su...

Re: Very slow stepping thro code (7000 lines)

Hi,
have you tried editing/ debugging with a version where you removed those "cosmetic line breaks"? Should be easy to test.

Have fun!

Re: Dicky Downloads?

Hi, when I recently downloaded from http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode, my Waterfox browser on Win 10 behaved just as described: - no information about the final size of the download - no finishing of the download ("downloaded size" remains at final size, but DL doesn't end) The DownThemAll! add...

Re: LC and transactions in MySQL

Hi, just an idea: Youre table is not MyISAM, right? Because there's no transactions there ... And in InnoDB, the behaviour of the db depends of the setting of " autocommit " (default: on). I rarely use transactions, but when I do, I don't send them as a block ("START TRANSACTION; UPDATE t_table SET ...

Re: How to stop Answer Dialog from displaying "answer dialog" ?

Hi,

another Win 10-64, LC 9.5 test:
"Answer dialog" is shown in the title, very shortly, maybe 1/2 secs. Then it's replaced with the proper dialog title. So confirming.

Have fun!

Re: Various ways of matching a line

Hi, put line lineoffset(5, tData) into theLine -- returns 5 Nope. Not at all. Didn't you test this? ;-)) First, "put line [aNumber] into theLine" will throw "compilation error (Chunk: missing chunk)" - line x of what? Second, "line lineoffset(5, tData) of tData" would return "5 bob accountant" - not...

Re: Here are ways to improve performance for processing large strings

Hi, right, leaving the original data "as-is" & building a new output variable usually is much faster. Only, at a certain point (= VERY big variables) you'll hit a wall - when appending to the output variable takes more & more time each iteration! Should this happen you'll be faster writing your outp...

Re: Here are ways to improve performance for processing large strings

Hi, most important here: If you go for large data, avoid "repeat with ..."! Instead use "repeat for each ..." Example: I dumped a table from an SQL database, 67247 records, 77 fields each, 18 MB. I'll count how often "899" occurs in the 3rd field. 1st try: on mouseUp put URL "file:C:\Users\user\Desk...

Re: How to save data on android from different fields into a text file with different data?

Hi, "answer files" is a command, maybe this is mixing up the call? You might try: put tData into url("file:" & tFile) put the result into tResult put files(specialfolderpath("documents")) into tTheFiles answer "Result:" && tResult & CR & tTheFiles I'd try it in the oldfashioned way: -- we assume: --...

Re: Path to database

Hi, While I haven't explored Windows past 7, I am pretty sure that you can indeed write to the applications folder if it were in any of the default locations. Of course, that may have changed from 8 -> 10, because Ms really started playing with that UAC stuff pretty heavily. At least the current Win...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Hi, Now I can spare myself a lot of time and aggro if I have a small standalone for, say, Windows, which a potential customer can run on his/her system and it can tell me what sort of Windows they are using and whether their computer is a 32-bit or a 64-bit machine. This is particularly useful as mo...

Re: Using a remote stack instead of a database to share data

Hi, if you open a remote stack you're actually creating a snapshot of this stack in your local RAM. As soon as you have done this, someone other can change or even delete this stack, without you noticing. To change data in this remote stack, you must save your local copy to it, actually replacing it...

Hi, this should work for most cases: on mouseUp ask "Gimmi a date string:" with "2019-08-11T20:17+0000" if it is empty then exit mouseUp else put it into myStrg end if get getTimeFromString(myStrg) -- see function below if it begins with "error" then answer error quote & myStrg & quote & " isn't a s...

Re: itemdelimiter?

Hi,

is there a special reason to use itemdel at all?
Why not just grab "char 12 to 17 of twhatEver"?

Have fun!
